Hablot Knight Brown known as Phiz” was the greatest illustrator of Charles Dickens’ fiction. In a collaboration that lasted for a quarter of a century, Phiz’s drawings brought to life a galaxy of immortal characters. Fittingly, Phiz himself from the mystery of his birth onwards led a life as rich as any novel. In this lively memoir, Phiz’ great-great-granddaughter traces his path to fame in a tale bustling with color and adventure. Based on a wealth of unpublished material and brimming with Phiz’s delicious illustrations, this is the perfect book for all who love Dickens and the hidden byways of Victorian life.
