How to Explain Amazon’s Kindle to Charles Dickens


As a student at Cardiff School of Art and Design, illustrator Rachel Walsh was asked to create a project that would explain something modern/internet-based to somebody who lived and died before 1900. 

Walsh’s innovative idea was to take a large book and create 40 miniature books from its pages in order to explain the kindle to Dickens. The covers are recreations from real books and include Dicken’s own novels, his favourite childhood books, and some of the artist’s own.
