Greeting Cards back to Publications & Sales

The Collection is pleased to offer to the public a unique and distinctive selection of holiday greeting cards. These cards feature color reproductions of four exquisite illuminations from late Medieval books in manuscript that came to the museum as part of the Belle Skinner Collection and are currently on deposit in the Beinecke Library. Available with or without a Christmas greeting, these cards are suitable for either holiday greeting or general use, and they make a handsome gift.
