Light Unlocked: Christmas Card Poems


Date: 2005
Format: Hardback
ISBN: 9781904634188

Light Unlocked consists of poems sent by their authors, many of them well-known contemporary writers, as Christmas cards.

It begins with Advent and ends with songs at the year’s turning and Epiphany. While a good number of the poems attend to the nativity, others also encompass the natural world, weather and the time passing. Hardbound and filled with festive engravings by John Lawrence Light Unlocked is, above all, a celebration of festivity. It is therefore a fantastic choice for a Christmas gift.

Edited by Lawrence Sail & Kevin Crossley-Holland.

‘This is one of the most delightful anthologies to be published in years. It’s beautifully illustrated and the poems…echo…with charm and sheer joy.’
Sir Trevor McDonald
