More than a century and a half after its first edition was released, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is a timeless tale that, like any self-respecting classic, still has much to tell us.
Combining past and present, it is a story that talks about loneliness, disillusionment and past mistakes that come back, knocking on the door of our consciousness, as well as the chains that each of us builds along the often tangled path that is everyday life. But A Christmas Carol is principally a story of hope, a powerful anecdote against distrust and suspicion.
Scrooge, Tiny Tim, the three Ghosts and other characters come to life in this new edition, which features Federico Maggioni's incredible illustrations. The vibrancy of their design and colour give a new, original twist to this literary Christmas classic.
