An independent York shop has created another magical Christmas window display to enchant festive shoppers.
The display at Cleggs on Goodramgate shows characters from a new illustrated children’s book, Maisie’s Magical Christmas.
The book is written and illustrated by Mark and Nicky Jones from Cleggs, under Mark’s pen-name Jon Markes, using images of characters created by Nicky.
It follows the success of their book Santa’s Trousers, a book which was also promoted with a fantastic display in the shop – and a stop-motion animated film.
The new book centres on Maisie, who is a ‘Reclaimer’ – one of a group of characters designed and made by Nicky using recycled materials.
Reclaimers care for the environment, creating things from other people’s rubbish and bits and pieces gathered from nature.
They are joined by a cast of festive animals, some of which readers will recognise from Santa’s Trousers.
Characters in both Maisie’s Magical Christmas and Santa’s Trousers are available to purchase from Cleggs’ shop.
And both books are also available from cleggsyork.com, or Amazon.
