Little Dorrit Illustrations

Little_Dorrit Cover Hablot Browne (Phiz) provided all 40 illustrations for Little Dorrit published in monthly parts Dec 1855 - June 1857.

Browne continues to use the dark plate technique, as in Bleak House. He also continues to reduce the use of emblematic detail in the illustrations.

Michael Steig, in Dickens and Phiz, points out that in the illustration for the title page, where Little Dorrit is seen leaving the prison, she seems bathed in light coming from within the prison, giving the sense that Amy goes into a world much darker than the prison.
