The New York Public Library Image Collection has a great collection of vintage Christmas cards that I’ve been perusing for hours. It’s interesting to see how some of the holiday images and styles have changed over the years. The card below with the yellow flowers doesn’t remind me of Christmas but it is a very pretty image.
The collection includes 74 cards from foreign countries, including the Czech one above. I really like the image because food is an important part of how I celebrate the holidays. A few images down, you’ll see an Italian card with an attractive couple ready to start dancing. I wonder if it was an early version of those photo cards with family photos on it?
Have a wonderful holiday season, dear readers!
