Victorian Ghosts

by Manelle Oliphant

Victorian Ghosts, 31 days of Gloom and Malaise is an illustrated book with 31 ghosts and the stories of their untimely demise.

Feel sad for the tragic death of Arabella Gallen, or amused by the determined spirit of Lady Staunton. Whoever has died you can look forward to an intriguing tale of each ghost’s death.

Each ghost was drawn during #inktober 2016 and compiled into a book later. This is a perfect book for to enjoy in October as you count the days to Halloween.


Inktober 2016 challenge was the reason these amazing pen and ink drawings were made. The paragraph-long stories about each drawing are delightful, amusing, and sometimes heartbreaking. I highly recommend this delightful book.
