Burn Baby Burn

Celebrate Charles Dickens in style

Published on February 7th 2012.

Burn Baby Burn

WHAT are you doing to celebrate the 200th birthday of Charles Dickens?

There’s that exhibition going on at the Museum of London or the big dinner tonight at the Mansion House (£120 a head) – or maybe you want something that will satiate you for a little longer (and not leave your wallet quite so light)? How about rereading Great Expectations… err, or watching the BBC’s three-part adaptation… and picking up one of these Paddywax candles instead? Packaged in book cloth covered boxes and embellished with antique-looking stamp labels, the tangerine, juniper and citrus scented candles are sure to bring a little warmth to even the chilliest of nights. Each one bears a quote from the great man himself and has up to 60 hours of burn time. Now there is a gift that keeps on giving.


Happy birthday, Mr. Dickens.

Paddywax Library Collection carried at The British Library or at the Candle Selection
