Hark the What…?


This small book contains thirty-six greeting cards for Christmas and the New Year, one sent each year from 1982 to 2018. Some of the sketches on them record events of particular salience at the time they were designed. Others relate events and beliefs of the start of the third millennium to those prevalent at the start of the first. In case where passing time may have dimmed memories of events once current, a brief note has been added as a reminder. The collected cards thus offer a sequence of landmarks in the history of the past quarter of a century.
