Merry Christmas!


My grandmother’s aunt, Elizabeth Stroble, created this beautiful linoleum block print when she was an art teacher at Central High School in St.Paul, Minnesota (1940s-1950s). Carved with the help of her students, she sent these to family and friends as her Christmas card.

This poster is titled “Christmas Peace” and reads “The Light of the World is Born.” The design is a curious mix of Christmas themes with Santa in his sleigh, along with the wise men, angel, and nativity.

I hope Peace touches your life this Christmas. Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Christmas!

    I just found your website yesterday while searching for bird templates that I might use for crafting with my daughters. They are wonderful! My favorite part is the photographs of the birds in their “natural habitat.” Merry Christmas.

  2. That is a beautiful print, we did that in junior high school. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and many blessings in the coming year.
