Christmas Is Coming

Miniature is 2 3/16" x 1 1/2", micro-miniature is 3/4" x 5/8"
28 pages, 1 fold-out

A nursery rhyme and Christmas carol of (probably) Victorian origin, "Christmas Is Coming"was popularized in America by the Kingston Trio in 1960. The melody to which it is sung is reputedly by the English children's book author Edith Nesbit Bland.

I've illustrated this happy little song on flowing golden banners, and since the song is often sung as a round, the second round lyrics are dimly seen behind every line. There is a playful fold-out for the final line.

The book is bound in green and gold marbled paper, with a paper title on the front.
