“I just finished the last of the ninety odd drawings for a sort of children’s book entitled: The Hauntings at Tankerton Park – and how they got rid of them, a tale in verse… The words I wrote some time ago but the drawings have taken ages. I say ‘sort of’ children’s book because I wrote and drew it really to amuse myself and though it’s just the sort of book that I would have loved as a child, I was a peculiar sort of child (still am) and it might be too macabre for some. It is about a Victorian haunted house, quite mad and part of it is a rhyming alphabet.”
—Reggie Oliver

“In the year Eighteen ninety, a banker called Clark
Bought a place in the country called Tankerton Park
Mr Clark, Mrs Clark, with Laura and Faye
Their two little daughters, moved in one March day.
And with them came Ron, their pet dog, and a horse
And the usual posse of servants of course.
They found the place elegant roomy and smart,
But terribly troublesome right from the start.
Some quite inexplicable things would appear
Which struck the whole household with horror and fear
The strangest thing was that they could record a
Sequence of haunts in alphabet order”

The Hauntings at Tankerton Park is published as large (21 by 29 cm) format hardcover volume
with silk bookmark and contains exquisite drawings by Reggie Oliver.

Price is 67.00 Euro plus 7.00 Euro for trackable worldwide airmail shipping.

“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us. If the book we’re reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for? So that it will make us happy, as you write? Good Lord, we would be happy precisely if we had no books, and the kind of books that make us happy are the kind we could write ourselves if we had to. But we need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us. That is my belief.” (Franz Kafka in a letter to his friend Oskar Pollak, 27. January 1905)
