Charles Dickens by JuanOsborne Charles Dickens by JuanOsborne
There is a lot of people celebrating two hundred years of Charles Dickens and I also want to do a little tribute to this great English writer.

I took more than fifty books and novels by Dickens (including the most iconic like Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities and A Christmas Carol) and counted the words. I spread the words over two different portraits images.

The first words in the list. oliver (868),upon (755),replied (548),bumble (399),gentleman (366),lady (359),sikes (357),dear (330),jew (325),fagin (317),sir (314),away (298),another (275),without (253),woman (229),poor (204),window (202),shall (192),heart (185),quite (181),child (177),arm (172),brownlow (167),something (166),returned (164),doctor (161),master (161),manner (160),whether (156),moment (153),observed (152),seen (150),london (149),sat (149),indeed (147),present (147),office (145),rather (145),bill (144),speak (143),expression (139)…

The illustrations represents the single word counting, but I also counted two and three words combo. If you are curious the three words combo list start with: gentleman in the white waistcoat (13),poor mercantile jack (11),waiter who ought to wait upon (8),great salt lake (7),queer small boy (7),spoken young man (7),well spoken young (7),french flemish country (6),titbull’s aims houses (6)…

I have to ask, was this inspired by Drood written by Dan Simmons? If not, that's totally fine. I'm still wallpapering this.

Hey, I showed this to my teacher and she fell in love with it. She was wondering if she could send this off to her friend at IU and make a poster out of. is that ok with you? We could put a mark under the poster (or on the other side, on of the two) with your name on it if you wish.
