Wow these are stunning! Have you found which shops carry the newspaper? I would love to have it!
Also I LOVE Miss Havisham in this!

No luck with shops, but I found out that one can order a copy from this site:

A Sunday issue comes to about $14 in U.S. dollars. I wouldn't want to pay that very often for a newspaper, that's for sure! But for that beautiful poster, I think I'll pay it just this once.

Thank you so much! I will also be ordering one, those illustrations are too beautiful! I can't wait to see them in person! Let me know what you think once you get yours, and thank you again.

Thanks for clueing me in to this. A Dickens extravaganza lasting months! I'm ready . . .

Just to let you know, shipping brings it to $29 total! I do wish I could have found it in a shop. :-) I had a British friend who was going to look for a copy for me, but where she is, she wasn't sure she could get one.

I think it's a testament to our personalities when I'm told I get Uriah Heep and you guys get Sydney Carton. 0_0 Blue eyes, Mr. Heep? Quite a difference from the red in the novel.

But thanks for pointing this out because otherwise they are really cool! I especially like Miss Havisham and Sydney looks great also.

And also happy upcoming birthday, Gina!!!

Thanks! :-) But you always did have a bit of fondness for the umble one, didn't you? Or is it more of a "love to hate" thing?

You're right about the eyes. The artist generally seems to have paid so much attention to detail, I'm surprised he missed that one.

Yes, I did. I hate to admit it, lol. I still need to write that fic, too!

And yeah, it's odd to overlook - especially since it's right there in the accompanying description! ;D

I'm behind on a story or two myself . . .

I wanted to ask, I got the poster in the newspaper The Observer, and was wondering if you were planning to/had framed it? If so, what size frame did you get? I bought one at Wal-Mart but it was much too big.

I'm still trying to figure out how to get the creases out of it! :-) When I go to get it framed, though, I'll measure it and take along the measurements.
