Description

A talented journalist, artist and draughtsman by profession, Frank Leah possessed a far more extraordinary gift: he was the greatest psychic artist this world has seen.

This book, first published in 1943 and now made available again in a brand new edition, offers an amazing and unforgettable account of Leah's work for the inhabitants of this world and the Spirit World. It includes numerous examples of the breathtaking likenesses he was able to draw, as those who had left this earthly plane of existence posed willingly for the artist in order that their loved ones on earth might have the comfort of knowing they were still very much alive. Nothing was too much trouble for these spirit models as they conveyed to Leah the smallest details of their bone structure, facial features, hairstyle and other unique distinguishing marks, knowing that when it comes to convincing someone of survival beyond death, it is the unique personal details which truly count.

Look and marvel at Leah's portraits, displayed side by side with the comparison photos supplied by overjoyed relatives after the artist had completed a portrait of a loved one whose face they never expected to see again. Read and enjoy the astonishing evidence of one who left people with absolute certainty that there is no such thing as death.

Rhoda Ring

A minute is not long. But it was just long enough for Mrs. K. M. Ring, of Newbury, Berks, to hear Leah give a detailed description of her daughter and to draw a portrait of her. This happened when Mrs. Ring called on the artist on the anniversary of her ‘dead’ daughter’s birthday. Though Leah is critical of his work, he regards this portrait as an outstanding achievement, for it is seldom that he, rapid worker though he is, does a drawing at such speed. He thinks the pace and accuracy in this case are due to the strong rapport achieved between himself and the Spirit girl. Leah said: "She was so active that I could not resist making another sketch in the presence of a responsible person." This drawing, done four days after the first – when the mother was present – he says is an even better likeness. The 'dead' girl, to show how much she is alive, impressed on her mother her desire for a third portrait, and indicated which expression she wished to have portrayed. To help the artist she showed herself in a number of poses, including a profile, which is part of the evidence, for Rhoda was always sensitive over the size of her nose, and Leah has reproduced this feature. But in the Spirit World, Rhoda has got over her sensitiveness. When Mrs. Ring visited the artist for the second time she found the third portrait completed, but Rhoda was still active, so active, said Leah, that "not for a long time has a communicator shown herself in so many different positions or given so little trouble. It has been a grand experience. I could have done at least another two portraits of her."

Rhoda Ring

But Mrs. Ring goes further, and says that the full-face portrait is a truer likeness than the photograph which is printed for comparison.  There is, as always, a little more to this account. The day before she visited Leah for the first time she wrote a birthday letter to her daughter, and left it open on her dressing-table. Then she went to have a sitting with Joseph Benjamin, the east London medium, through whom Rhoda proved herself in many ways, repeating also the contents of the birthday letter. She also promised a portrait, and a few hours later kept her promise. Later Mrs. Ring found the word 'Rhoda' written on the back of a letter in her handbag. Now she is an enthusiastic Spiritualist.

Cowley Wright

Mrs Wade saw Cowley Wright on stage at Drury Lane shortly before he died and felt a strong, unexplainable connection to him. After his death he became her guide controlling her hand in automatic writing. She wanted a permanent record of her guide and asked him if he would co-operate if she went to Leah.
