I'm American and so first discovering Gormenghast at 39 years old as it hasn't penetrated our culture much at all.

I've been listening to it as a book on tape and up to the middle of book 2 - Gormenghast.

I noticed the names are quite different. Lady Fuschia is the same.

Lenflure most be Abiatha Swelter.

Nanny Glu must be Nannie Slagg.

Is Finelane = Steerpike? The young schemer.

Is Cracloss = Flay, the old Lord's butler, later living in the woods?

Great pics. Below I translated to French using google translate to make your life easier.

Je suis américain et donc d'abord la découverte de Gormenghast à 39 ans car elle n'a pas pénétré notre culture beaucoup à tous.

J'ai écouté comme un livre sur cassette et jusqu'au milieu du livre 2 - Gormenghast.

J'ai remarqué que les noms sont tout à fait différent. Dame Fuschia est la même.

Plus Lenflure être Abiatha Swelter.

Nanny Glu doit être Nannie Slagg.

Est-Finelane = Steerpike? Le jeune intrigante.

Est-Cracloss = Flay, maître d'hôtel du vieux Seigneur, plus tard, vivant dans les bois?

Dessins des Grands.

Wow, you've captured the characters perfectly. Especially Fushica, you've managed to get that defiant but childish sulky pout exactly right. Love Nanny Slagg too.

I'm going to attempt my own set of portraits soon based on the Gormenghast characters, and if they get anywhere near being this spot-on, I'll be very happy indeed. :)

Sally, mon ange!!

I have a book about the making of Gormenghast.
I wish I could either see the movie/series or read the book, but I can't seem to find either.

:D

I adore Fuschia.
