Mad Duck is releasing a new poster in our Classic Literature Series this week for a book that has become timeless, and a true holiday favorite. We are excited to announce new posters for Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" with art by Jonathan Burton!
Jonathan had the following comments about the project:
"This was a great occasion to get into the character studies as described in Dickens’ novel. The concept plays with the idea of these ghosts being in his shadow to haunt him and I like the circularity of the image that leads up the image, in order of appearance, back down to his grave.
A Ghost Story of Christmas is the novels subtitle and it's the dark and moody atmosphere that I feel is the most fun to concentrate on. Christmas is a time for spooky stories around the log fire and I hope this poster haunts you. That these ghost of Past, Present and Future remind you of the the story’s message that time is fleeting but it’s never too late to open out hearts to the pain and struggle (and love) of others."
In Scrooge’s words:
"Good Spirit," he pursued, as down upon the ground he fell before it: "Your nature intercedes for me, and pities me. Assure me that I yet may change these shadows you have shown me, by an altered life!
“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!"
Posters will go on sale this Wednesday, December 20th at 12PM Eastern!
