Pictures from Italy
Charles Dickens, Livia Signorini
130 pages; 140 x 220 mm; Hardcover
Pictures from Italy is one of Charles Dickens’ earlier works, a fantastic and whimsical foray into the twin worlds of travel and the imagination. Written in the 1840s when he traveled to the continent, it is a travelogue offering a rare glimpse into his life.
In this illustrated edition, Italian artist Livia Signorini takes inspiration from Dickens’ words and plays with his sense of place, memory, and politics. The result is a contemporary dialogue with his work which renews our sense of his enduring vision.
Pictures from Italy is a tribute to the world of the great master in the 200th year of his birth.
