Christmas Tree and Reindeer Christmas card pack of 6
Deep in the forests of the north Norway spruce trees, heavy with snow, glitter in the weak winter sun. Silently a female reindeer makes its way through the forest, steam curling from her nose and antlers reaching to the heavens as she searches for mushrooms hidden in the snow. Celebrating the snowy winters of northern Europe this pack of 6 Christmas cards capture the symbol of life an evergreen Norway spruce - the traditional Christmas tree - brings and the beautiful sure-footedness of the reindeer to guide us through winter. Graced with pen and ink illustrations by Agnes Becker and dip pen calligraphy by Gaelle Jolly send your loved ones a moment of wonder for the evergreen Christmas tree and sure-footed (and flying?) reindeer.

Front of Reindeer card: Reindeer of the North, with strong, growing antlers, unique as fingerprints, she guide us through winter nights. (Calligraphy by Gaelle Jolly)
Back of Reindeer card: Reindeers live in the north where winters are long and harsh. Their antlers grow new every year, each as unique as fingerprints. Only female reindeer keep their antlers through winter so it must be they that guide Father Christmas’ sleigh. The reindeer’s penchant for eating magic mushrooms may have led to stories about their ability to fly. Perfectly adapted to cold climates, reindeer guide ancient tribes through snowy winter nights.
Front of Christmas tree card: O Christmas tree, your evergreen needles grow in the scarce winter light, a symbol of life while all else sleeps. (Calligraphy by Gaelle Jolly)
Back of Christmas tree card: Over thousands of years the Norway spruce, Picea Abies, adapted to its native northern european environment. Here, winters are long and sunlight scarce. Dressed in its coat of green all year round, the spruce absorbs as much of the weak light as it can to make food, slowly growing into the most beautiful Christmas tree. An evergreen celebration of life while all else sleeps.
