’The Child of the Marshalsea’ - Enlarged Dicken’s illustrations mounted on the wall of a Public Library.

Little Dorrit exiting the gate of the Marshalsea Prison.

Photos of pupils posing in improvised costumes are set into the illustrated pages of Charles Dickens’ novel Little Dorrit (drawn by Hablot Browne aka Phiz).

 The four panels were placed along Angel Alleyway, on the wall of the public library, opposite the siteof the prison.

The cut out images were applied to aluminium sheet using encapsulated vinyl. The effect was like a page from a pop up book.
