Overview

The Night Before Christmas: A Magical Cut-Paper Edition by Clement C. Moore, Niroot Puttapipat

Delicate cut-paper illustrations let readers peek ahead to the next scene in this elegant edition of a classic poem evoking the anticipation of Christmas Eve.

Clement C. Moore’s "Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas," first published in 1825, spurred a revision of Yuletide traditions with its image of a merry Santa Claus beloved by children around the world. Now a cut-paper edition of the poem, with exquisite illustrations by Niroot Puttapipat, elicits the magic of the season through moonlit silhouettes. With scenes that transform with the turn of each page, revealing the fine details and decorations of a festive family home, this keepsake edition features a final pop-up spread that captures all the excitement of a special night.
