Our collection includes designs for Christmas cards, illustrated books of carols, travel posters, wintry landscapes, plant studies, advertisements, designs for book covers and menus for staff Christmas parties. These date from the 1890s up until the mid-1950s. Among the artists featured are Arthur Gaskin, Florence Camm and Arthur Lockwood. 

We hope to see you in the Archives in the New Year! In the meantime, enjoy the holiday.
