Dracula - Scented Book Candle
This candle is inspired by the first edition of Dracula, published in 1897 by Archibald Constable and Company in London, and priced at 6 shillings.
1897 was a good year for vampires. Philip Burne-Jones’s painting The Vampire was exhibited for the first time and caused a sensation. Rudyard Kipling, inspired by Burne-Jones’s painting, wrote a poem, also called The Vampire.
And finally, Bram Stoker’s iconic novel, Dracula, was presented to the public. Hello to you too, Count Dracula!
Funny fact: according to Bram Stoker’s son Noel, the genesis of Dracula was a terrifying dream about a vampire king rising from his tomb, brought on by eating too much lobster.
Favorite quote: “How blessed are some people, whose lives have no fears, no dreads; to whom sleep is a blessing that comes nightly, and brings nothing but sweet dreams.”
