Black-and-white photographs of Charles Dickens have been "colourised" using digital techniques to reveal a true likeness of the 19th Century novelist.

 

The Charles Dickens Museum researched the writer's fashion styles and the complexion of his living descendants to create the images for a new exhibition.

 

The first picture to be released shows a smiling 47-year-old Dickens with tanned skin and a tartan waistcoat.

 

Curator Frankie Kubicki said it "really gives a hint of what he was like".
