Cranham jigsaw: a Victorian Christmas alphabet (500px)
This 500 piece jigsaw puzzle is a reproduction of delicately hand-coloured Victorian alphabet images entirely devoted to the theme of Christmas. A short descriptive verse accompanies each letter, and together they tell a narrative story of a child's Victorian Christmas, celebrated in the cosiness of a family home. These reproductions are taken from the book "Father Christmas' ABC" published by F Warne & Co c 1894, which is part of the John Johnson Collection in the Bodleian Libraries, Oxford.
