Charles Dickens’ famous Christmas story ‘A Christmas Carol’ is vividly depicted in Alderney’s festive set of stamps, designed by illustrator Andrew Robinson.

Dickens, widely considered the greatest novelist of the Victorian era and a well-known philanthropist, wrote the story in 1843 after having seen the conditions of the manufacturing works in Manchester. At the time it was tradition to read ghost stories at Christmas.
