Happy Christmas

We would like to wish all our readers a very happy Christmas and New Year from Glasgow School of Art Library.

Our Christmas card this year depicts Hyde Park in London with the Serpentine frozen over. It is taken from a scrapbook of Victorian greetings cards in our special collections, dating from around 1880. The compiler is unknown, although an inscription (“To C. M. G. R. with Blanchie’s love, June 13th 1874”) in hand-coloured Gothic script does appear to the front of the volume.
