ART :: CHARLES DICKENS: 4 GHOSTS… PART II

I trust everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season! To celebrate the season here at “The Strange, Far Places,” I wanted to create a poster series in tribute to the Charles Dickens ubiquitous holiday classic “A Christmas Carol.” This is the second installment in the series.

We all know the story and we all tend to think of it for it’s message, a universal story of redemption and change. What we tend to forget because of its hopeful holiday context is that it’s really, in style and subject, another one of Dickens’ ghost stories. Realistically, this story is crawling with them — the four main agents of change within the story being spirits bent on not only educating Scrooge into a new way of life, but also scaring the nightshirt off of him to do so.

Between now and the New Year, I am posting 4 posters in tribute to the season and the ghosts that drive this Christmas story of chills and change. Here is poster No. 2 ::

The happiest of holidays to all!
