Christmas Season's most well-known and recited poem celebrates its 200th birthday in December. Clement Moore wrote the poem for his children and it was published Dec. 13, 1823, in the Troy Sentinel, in Troy N.Y.
The artwork and literary references presented in Twas the Night were selected to demonstrate the way in which the poem drew upon two centuries of winter cultural traditions and customs. Over 200 images are presented including works from numerous famous illustrators. This is the perfect holiday keepsake book!
"A delightful and informative exploration of 'A Visit from St. Nicholas' for the holiday season”
