Dickens Diorama

On Friday 9th Dec, the Museum of London's major Dickens exhibition will open to the public. Simon Costin, the man behind The Museum of British Folklore, has created a window display depicting a Victorian street scene made entirely out of brown cardboard. The multi-talented team of Jenna Rossi-Camus, Yasemen Hussein, Rachael Champion and Russell Harris, worked for many hours along with Simon to create a vision of Lost London. Simon said: ‘My intention is to create a fantasy vision of London as it would have been glimpsed by Dickens on his nocturnal wanderings through the city. Dickens said that he felt like a child in a dream, ‘staring at the marvellousness of everything’. It is that marvellousness that I want to recreate’. Read more here.
