Christmas Poems by Carol Ann Duffy - signed limited edition for independent bookshops
This book has been signed by Carol Ann Duffy. Each book has an edition number out of an edition of 2500. It has a beautiful blue foiled exterior, bespoke endpapers and a ribbon marker.
Bringing together the ten festive poems that Duffy wrote during her tenure as Poet Laureate, this sumptuous edition also boasts stunning illustrations from a range of great artists and makes the perfect Christmas gift for all lovers of verse.
For a decade, while she was Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy gifted her thousands of readers an illustrated poem every Christmas, transporting them in one year to a seventeenth-century festival on the frozen Thames, in another to Western Front to witness the famous 1914 truce, then to a sweet winter's night in the South of France with Pablo Picasso and his small dog.
Christmas Poems showcases Duffy's bold and innovative voice, alongside gorgeous artwork from Rob Ryan, David De Las Heras and Lara Hawthorne, amongst others. These ten much-loved poems are gathered together for the first time in this compendium to make a perfect gift for old friends celebrating a decade's tradition or those experiencing the magic of Duffy's festive verse for the first time.
