Block Print Christmas Cards

I love the art of the early to mid 20th century, and one contemporary artist in particular captures the art of the Arts and Crafts Movement: Laura Wilder. I have the good fortune to own one of her "The Potter" prints. Using traditional block print processes, Laura prints her originals by hand. Here's some of what she's got in the way of holiday cards:

"The Gloaming"


"Montreal"



"Christmas Tabby"

I think the "Montreal" cards may have to be my Christmas thank-you cards this year. I just love the sentiment and the graphic qualities of this work!
