"Book Synopsis For the first time, Charles Dickens's classic work is a heartwarming, mixed-media special edition complete with charming Victorian English-inspired watercolor paintings, decorative hand-lettering, vintage imagery, and space for journaling and reflection. As you read and connect with this unique, artfully-designed Visual Journey, its pages become a reminder that Christmas should be a time of goodwill to everybody--both the Cratchits and the Scrooges of the world! The high-spirited, generous-hearted Dickens reminds readers that wealth does not make Christmas happy, and that poverty and isolation need not make it miserable. Since its publication in 1843, A Christmas Carol has inspired millions of people to have compassion and love for the poor, the lonely, and the marginalized. This special Visual Journey edition is accented by 80 full-color paintings, engravings, and hand-lettered quotes. Additional stories in this collection include ""The Gift of the Magi"" (O. Henry), ""The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle"" (Arthur Conan Doyle), ""The Louis d'Or"" (François Coppée), and ""The Torn Cloak"" (Maxime du Camp)."
