Fiction, illustration, discussion – interesting weirdness for all the senses. Well, almost.

The Old Curiosity Schlock | Celebrating Dickens

In the run up to Charles Dickens’ bicentennial celebrations – the great Victorian author was born on February 7 – Schlock will join in the fun worldwide with a podcast focused on his work and more.

But in the meantime, we’ll be regaling you with a series of images recalling – however loosely – the multitudinous sprawl of Dickens’ classic novels and stories. Because love him or hate him, Dickens’ enduring tales of poverty and triumph, of injustice and goodness, remain a persistent influence on writers and artists even centuries after his death.

Our illustrations and photographers are already hard at work at some beautiful images – so be sure to keep an eye on the site, and your ears peeled for the podcast!

Remember to follow Schlock on Twitter and Facebook. Also, you may subscribe to our podcasts via iTunes!
