HOLIDAY CARDS IN THE LIBRARY KIOSK

Over the past twenty years North Redwoods Book Arts Guild members have created many cards to celebrate the winter holidays and some are now on display in the Humboldt County Library kiosk.
Colorful cards were made using a variety of materials and techniques: collage, watercolor, gouache, origami, folded stars, flexagon trees, calligraphy, computer art, hand marbled and decorated papers, dimensional folds, miniature books, pop-up, and paper sculpture.

One shelf is made up entirely of tree art, including a wish to “keep friendships evergreen”. Another shelf displays holiday trading cards, a volvelle holiday mood selector, and a calendar year of happy wishes.  A paper quilt card celebrates the art of Hmong New Year, Diwali, Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, The New Year, Chinese New Year, Tibetan New Year, and Winter Celebrations. One hand lettered card from 2008 reads: “There are many paths. As we walk one, may we honor all.”

Enjoy this holiday season
and have a Happy New Year!!
