Ordinarily I wouldn’t be thinking about Christmas when it is only mid-October, but the V&A currently have an Early Bird Offer on selected Christmas Cards at their online shop.
Available until just 30th October, the offer includes several of their retro card designs with a third off the usual price if you buy in bulk. The font design above “Alphabet de Capitals fleronneer” was taken from a bookplate from an album of historical alphabets by Joseph Balthazar Silvestr dating back to 1843. The other image pictured here is a design by Sidney Sime which featured on the front cover of the magazine “Black and White” in 1899.
A pack of 10 cards normally costs £6.50, but for the offer period, you can buy 3 pack of 10 for £13. Visit the V&A Shop website to take advantage of the offer.
