Twenty-five Years of Christmas Cards: a collaboration between poet and printer

Wednesday, November 28 through Sunday, January 6
Reception: Sunday, December 2   4-6 pm

For twenty-five years, poet Robert Frost collaborated with the Spiral Press and several Young_Birch_inside_edited_for_webartists/illustrators to create unique Christmas cards to be sent by the Frost family and by Frost's publishers. The artists involved include Thomas W. Nason, J.J. Lankes, Fritz Eichenberg, Philip Grushkin, Howard Norton Cook, Leo Manso, Linn Lloyd Benton, Stefan Martin, Antonio Frasconi and Joseph Low. The Spiral Press was founded by Joseph Blumenthal in 1926. He and Frost became friends during their collaboration on the cards.
These very special cards have been graciously loaned to the Library by Elinor Wilber, Robert Frost's granddaughter.
