Merry Christmas!

Linocut by James Reaney, 1965

 

On his birthday there is a blue sky
In the swale there’s clear ice
Two boys  skate an X, the Greek letter Chi
Because it stands for Christ

MERRY CHRISTMAS

from the Reaneys
1965

James Reaney made this linocut design in December 1965 and printed a set of Christmas cards for friends and family at the Alphabet Press in London, Ontario.

Merry Christmas and All the best for 2013!
