While reading in Whitby library located at the end of the pier, Dram Stoker was captivated by accounts of the 15th century blood-thirsty tyrant of Transylvania, Count Dracula. Later, he would be told seafarers’ tales about a shipwreck inn October 1885 of a Russian vessel called Dmitry, from Narva, carrying a cargo of silver sand.

You can almost imagine Stoker staggering out along the windswept pier, and absorbing the bleak headland, the dramatic Abbey ruins, a church surrounded by swooping bats and considering Dracula’s arrival on this ship.

In true Gothic style, Vicky captures the atmospheric occasion on a sailor’s flagon. Under a Hunter’s Moon, a red oak-framed galleon ship is lifted on the crashing waves as the silhouette of the ancient Abbey stands ominously over the sleepy fishing village. On the reverse, elongated shadows of serrated wings mimic the towering silhouettes of the Abbey – whispers of a casket being opened, revelations from a ship’s log, and a mysterious dog soaring up the 99-steps to the Abbey, announcing the arrival of Dracula himself?
