Trial edition of 'A Christmas Carol'
Episode Three looks at how the physical book of 'A Christmas Carol,' came to be made, exploring the carefully crafted process of creating this beautiful, little book. How was it designed? Who drove its creation? And what does all this tell us about Dickens as a writer?
In this trial edition of 'A Christmas Carol,' Dickens has played with the colour scheme, replacing the blue ink with green. This edition was never released, however, and the colouring remained blue. This piece is discussed by Frankie and Emma in episode three.
