From the introduction to The Christmas Angel Book: "We can only imagine how exquisite the angels must have appeared to the shepherds tending their flocks on the night of Jesus' birth...Today angel images remind us that Christmas is the celebration of a miracle.
"The angels on these cards summon us to a joyful Christmas; they are its harbingers: guarding the crèche, playing ethereal or merry tunes on their instruments, befriending animals in the woods, bringing forth fir trees, goodies and gifts..."

The Christmas Angel Book includes an international collection of antique Christmas cards, each card offering a different luminous view of a yuletide angel.

The Santa Book

by Agatha E. Gilmore
Hardcover $9.95
Only $7.99 here

Aggie Gilmore is a Chicago Journalist.

From her introduction to The Santa Book:

"Father Christmas has come in many guises as the splendid greeting cards here reveal. St. Nicholas has appeared lean under a bishop's hat. In years past, he has worn bright yellow, green or purple or been enveloped in dark robes . . .

"Santa has charged through the snow astride a polar bear or atop a donkey. In some illustrations, he braved the winter's night alone, merrily stomping through the snow or sliding upon it in snow shoes . . ."

In The Santa Book, Ms. Gilmore deftly shows how the plump, rosy-cheeked Santa we love today rose from diverse traditions, some of them magical or scary. She has found an antique Christmas card image to match almost every phase of an evolving Santa. The international collection she has gathered is a small treasure that you may choose to leave intact.

However, the 32 cards have been designed with perforated edges to make it easy to cleanly remove any you'd like to slip in a gift package or mail to a friend.
