Christmas 1952

Standard

A small, understated gem of cover art from 1952. A diamond snowflake…

snowflake

Now she was round and pure as the morning light… able to catch and give back every colour in the world about her… thereafter she mirrored the pale pink of the cherry blossom, then the tint of orange filched from the breast of a robin as he flew by, and the light blue of a spring sky. The grey of a rock, the black of a crow’s glossy wing, the dapple of a young calf, all were hers.

  1. Ooh! I love this – image and words. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. I could look at that cover design for ages.

    I’ve got Paul Gallico’s ‘The Snow Goose’ with gorgeous illustrations by Angela Barrett which I’m hoping to read during this lead up to Christmas. Magical!
