His designs have been reproduced on holiday ornaments and home furnishings, including wallpaper and fabrics in the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum.

He lives in New York and Florida.

My Thoughts…

The Christmas season has always been one of my favorites. And there are so many reasons as to why such as I love giving much better than receiving anything back in return. I love how decorative people make their homes. I enjoy all the special foods! I enjoy celebrating the birth of our Savior! Trust me, I could keep going on and on.

A Christmas Carol Pop Up book is wonderful addition to my home library and will become as my children grow older a fun Christmas Tradition to enjoy each year! I can just see my children snuggling in a warm blanket on the couch or near the fire, sipping hot chocolate while munching on freshly baked cookies listening to their Daddy re-tell one of Charles Dickens finest works.  And how much more fun it will be staring at this beautifully intricate illustrated version!

You can purchase this timeless classic on Amazon for under $20.00! I highly recommend adding this wonderful book to your own home library to enjoy for years and years to come.
