I designed this seamlessly tileable plaid wallpaper, with the following thread count:  A Dickensian Christmas Carol Tartan thread count

The thread count has a lot of 12s, 18s, & 44s, representing the first month and year after A Christmas Carol's publication (December, 1843). I chose 1844 instead of 1843, because even numbers of threads tend to work out better when creating wallpapers with the Twill Pattern for Windows Desktops.

There are three red sections separated by two gold sections, representing the front, back, and spine, and the gold writing on the front and spine; there are three green sections, separated by white, representing the three edges of the pages of the book, and the two-sided pages thereof. This is based on the book described by Charles Dickens, in The Man Who Invented Christmas, but the edges of the original edition were probably gold, instead of green.

Another version of this tartan is at:  ScotWeb.

I dedicate this tartan to my fellow fans of Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol, and/or tartans.
