Visit From St. Nicholas

Visit of St. Nicholas ACEO card

I have this very old book published and copyrighted by McLoughlin Bros. in the year 1896. It is one of the oldest books I own. It is Visit of St. Nicholas, or The Night Before Christmas, which is the illustrated poem Dr. Clement Moore wrote for his children on Christmas Eve, 1822. Each time I print these blocks, I wonder how many little children have read, or had it read to them, through the years. It is rather worn!

In addition to making quilt blocks of these pages for quilts, I have reduced the last page and printed it on muslin for this ACEO card, which is 3.5" x 2.5". Additionally, I have shown a reduced scan of the page from the book and the back which will be printed on the card. Shipping is $1.50 and the card will be enclosed in an acid-free sleeve.
