These are the unique original Pen & Ink drawings by Sam Denley.

This original set of delicate pen and ink drawings by Sam Denley are the very rare complete set of illustrations for the illustrated book, Remember Me When I Am Gone Away by Christina Rossetti, published by Souvenir press in 1989.

Featuring 16 individual illustrations on tracing paper, the illustrations perfectly highlight the reflective nature of this masterpiece of sonnet writing.

This moving sonnet by Christina Rossetti, one of the leading poets of the nineteenth-century Pre-Raphaelite movement, has brought comfort in bereavement to millions of people.

With its message of simple remembrance without regrets, and its reassurance that it is better to 'forget and smile' than to 'remember and be sad', it brings help and comfort at a time when feelings of guilt and even bitterness can cloud the thoughts of the person left behind.
