The design of this six stamp collection uses a traditional artistic style, with each featuring a Victoriana book jacket to border the artworks, inspired by the original illustrations published in volume 1 of the novel, 1843.
Of the set, five stamps feature the colourised original hand-tinted engravings by illustrator John Leech, A Christmas Carol. The sixth stamp features a painting by Margaret Gillies, at the time during which the author wrote A Christmas Carol. It portrays an image of a 31 year old Dickens just week before he found success with his timeless festive novel, and is often referred to as the Lost Portrait.
