Unearthed - Bram Stoker Rare Papers
Discover Dracula like never before with museum quality reproductions from the life of Bram Stoker!
My research over the past fifteen years to co-author two international bestselling novels: Dracula the Un-Dead and Dracul; I have visited libraries, private collections and archives which has brought me in contact with incredibly rare books, papers, letters, and manuscripts. Every time I hold one of these treasured documents it strikes me that this is the closest I will get to my great grand uncle Bram Stoker, he lives on in these thoughts and words. Our goal is to recreate the special sense of discovery and reverence that comes from beholding for oneself these treasures of my great grand uncles’ personal history and that of his research and writing of Dracula. These replica documents, representative of the material legacy of Bram Stoker, are hand aged and come in a variety of different paper types.
