The Little Match Girl is a literary fairy tale by Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen. It tells the story, of a dying child's dreams and hope, and was first published in 1845. Within these matches, she sees images of her kind dead grandmother, a warm fireplace, and tasty holiday food. After seeing all these images, she lights all the matches and calls out to her grandmother, begging her to take her with her. In the mirage of the flames, the grandmother does, and come morning; her corpse is found smiling.

This version was designed in 2023 and was a mixed media project that mixed printmaking and digital to get the final result.
