Book Description

Nov. 3 2009
The charm, warmth, and beauty of a Swedish Christmas is captured in this remarkable collection of 300 colorful, fun, and historic postcards dating back to the 1800s. Each postcard reveals the magic behind Christmas and of Scandinavian tradition and folklore. Here, gnomish elves meet Santa and children play with angels. With traditional postcards from renowned artists such as Jenny Nystrom, Elsa Beeskow, and Aina Stenberg, accompanied by explanations of the cultural and historical past, God Jul will make everyone that is even a little bit Swedish homesick for an Old World Christmas.

This book was excellent as a gift for our friend. She was born in Sweden and has lived in the USA for about 30 years and she loved all the pictures. There are many photos of long ago postcards with Swedish holiday characters, traditional themes and designs. She is in her 60's now and said that this book was a treasure.

Book arrive in very nice condition. A lovely book with beautiful copies of old Swedish greeting cards, all done by Swedish well known Artists. Even if in Swedish which I don't understand, the cards speak for themselves.

This compilation of old Swedish postcards gave me much insight into many of the old Swedish traditions brought to the US in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Now I have some idea where my family's Christmas traditions came from.
