Vintage Bookspines Christmas Cards
Before the advent of dust jackets, many books, especially those for children, were bound in brightly colored cloth with pictorial blocking in gold and colors. These Christmas books were thus presented as attractive gifts. Similarly, this greeting card itself is a thoughtful gift to the recipient.
These die-cut, tri-fold cards feature a photographic image of a bookshelf in the University of Oxford's Bodleian Library filled with classic Christmas books chosen for their striking and appealing design, illustration, and typography.
Inside reads: "Merry Christmas".
The cards are designed and printed in Oxfordshire using stock from responsible forestry sources, essentially chlorine free and fully recyclable. All inks are vegetable based.
Each card is 4.88" wide and 6.75" tall
Set of eight cards and envelopes.
