George Orwell’s last Christmas card

In its George Orwell Archive, UCL Special Collections has a homemade Christmas card that Orwell’s five-year-old son Richard sent to his father in 1949.

Weeks later, his father died from tuberculosis.

Richard hadn’t seen the card since he was a child, so to promote the Orwell Archive, I interviewed him about its creation and his memories of his father.
