Holiday Cards

The Smithsonian's Archives of American Art has hundreds of handmade holiday cards which reveal how artists imagined the holidays through whimsical watercolors, quirky collages, and cheerful prints and drawings. Greeting cards can also be found in the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and the National Museum of American History collections. Enjoy this sampling of cards from around the Smithsonian, then visit the National Postal Museum for the art of Christmas stamps
