Illustrated with Ardizzone Christmas cards. Beginning in 1932, in an edition of 20, Ardizzone sent hand produced Christmas cards to family and close friends. They continued in small, special runs until 1972, when they then became reproductions of his book illustrations. The cards illustrated are those received by Augustin Booth who met and developed a close friendship with Ardizzone when they were fellow art students. A very fine copy.
