The Last Dream of my Soul : The Dickens 150 Print Open Call

Winning Drood cover linocut by Neil Mattingly

Dickens' Chalet by Samantha Edgley

The much-anticipated Dickens 150 Print Open Call. ‘The Last Dream of my Soul’ will bring together the beautiful and varied work of 50 printmakers from all over the UK created especially for the exhibition.

The exhibition explores death in Dickens’ life and novels, and his long association with Medway, and includes 100 new prints and delves into the Victorian obsession with mourning etiquette with unseen Victorian funerary treasures loaned from the Guildhall Museum collection.

The works on show include cover designs for a limited-edition re-issue of part one of The Mystery of Edwin Drood published to accompany the exhibition.   

This exhibition forms part of the Medway Print Festival 2021.
