About this Event

Writing for an audience that ranged from high society to the semi-literate, Dickens understood well, the importance of illustrations. This talk by Pete Smith tells the story of his close and often fraught collaboration with a range of talented artists, and points to the detailed clues in their illustrations that a modern reader might easily miss.
