The ChristMas Card: History, Images & Symbols
Easterbrook Hall, Crichton, Dumfries DG1 4TL
Tuesday 12 December 10:30 for 11:am
Guest Tickets £10
First appearing in the 1840s, Christmas cards quickly became a central element of the Christmas season. Their images demonstrate a complex mix of religious history and secular tradition – many early cards have no religious imagery at all. In recent years, cards have shown considerable stylistic innovation, though the early designs continue to prove surprisingly resilient.
The lecture traces the history of the Christmas card from its beginnings to the present day, with thoughts on its future in a world where digital communication is increasingly the norm.
