Compliments of the Season

All the Season's blessings

Did you know that the Christmas card is an English invention? John Calcott Horsley, painter and illustrator designed the very first card for the commission of Sir Henry Cole, the first director of the Victoria and Albert Museum.

It seems that we got both the Christmas tree and the Christmas card from the Victorians!

 

The Library Annexe Team wishes everyone a Happy Christmas!
