Colour in your own Historic Greeting Cards
Our special exhibition Beautiful Books: Dickens and the Business of Christmas looked at the advent and increasing popularity of greeting cards in the latter half of the 1800s. New printing technology like lithography meant they became more and more colourful as the century wore on.
Why don’t you choose a card, print and colour it in? Downloadable files available here ~ choose from Butterfly Card, Frame Card or the first ever Christmas Card design. Don't forget to post and tag us on social media so we can share on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
For inspiration below are examples of some of the lovely Christmas cards that were on display, on loan from Maggs Bros.
