(illus. by Peter de Sève)
Is everyone rereading A Christmas Carol this holiday season? Our friend Lena, Events Coordinator at powerHouse Arena is settling in (in style!) with our new edition.

This, my friends, is a fucking book jacket.
The caricature is by Peter de Sève and is one of seven he’s done for new Vintage Classics editions of Dickens. The basic design is inspired by the Victorian broadsheets and newspapers Dickens wrote for, and the caricatures call to mind the work of Thomas Rowlandson. These hotties hit shelves in January, just ahead of the Dickens Bicentennial.
They’re all obscenely handsome but, as a friend said: “Those leaves, man.”
