Marple is a pleasant English town located a short distance from Southport and Manchester. For decades now, the community has been claiming that it was the inspiration for the name of Agatha Christie’s iconic sleuth Miss Marple. The town has gone as far as commissioning these colorful posters of some of the novelist’s most popular titles. Sadly, the entire Marple-Marple connection is based on an apocryphal tale of Christie’s frequent visits to the town. Still, it makes for a great story over a pint in the local pub and for these wonderful book posters.
