We are honoured to present this limited edition of only 150 signed covers by Actor and Patron of the Charles Dickens Museum, Simon Callow CBE.
Callow is the author of the biography 'Charles Dickens and the Great Theatre of the World' and has been associated with Dickens all his career. Simon personally signed each of these 150 covers on 8th October in Charles Dickens's study, which is located at The Charles Dickens Museum with whom we have collaborated on this fascinating collection.
Actor Simon Callow, Patron of the Charles Dickens Museum, said, "I am really very happy to be returning to the Charles Dickens Museum, one of my absolute favourite places on earth, to support the launch of this splendid suite of stamps. John Leech's sketches were the very first illustrations of characters that had only just formed in the imagination of Charles Dickens and would soon become fixed in the hearts and minds of his readers. It's a particularly nice touch that they're joined in this set by the 'eagle-eyed' portrait of Dickens, which captures him when he was in the midst of creating them."
