Beautiful Books: Dickens and the Business of Christmas is a celebration of both beautiful books and print technology in the nineteenth century. It explores a Victorian publishing phenomenon and shows how Dickens shaped and coloured Christmas in ways that we still recognise today. It also examines the history of the book from leather to cloth binding and concepts such as reading by tallow light in the evenings.
