Marley's GHOST


This vintage handmade post card is from my Scottish maternal grandmother's collection. It is possible it was done by a relative because many of them were artists. Unfortunately it doesn't have any signature.

I've always loved this. A simple pen drawing with a watercolor wash, but it captures the feeling of Marely and the ghost from A Christmas Carol.

  1. It's an illustration, or rather a copy of an illustration, from the 1843 first edition of the book. It was by John Leech. You can find it online.
