The artist whose illustrations grace the pages of Christmas with Dickens is none other than Chas Pears, a popular early 20th century painter who continued to work through the second World War. There's an excellent entry on his work and life at Bear Alley Books. Having read A Christmas Carol last December, I'm looking forward to revisiting Dickens' holiday universe this year with tales like A Christmas Dinner. I haven't read any of the five stories yet as I'm saving them for Christmas Eve.
***Happy Holidays and Happy Reading to you all! ****
