Trumbull – Guion Christmas Card – 1953

Grandpa, being in the advertising business, used his very creative skills to produce a unique and personal Christmas card for many years.

I don’t know why there are two Christmas Cards that were dated 1953. It may be that one was for business associates and the other for personal friends, I’m not sure.

    The rabbits sketched around “Biss’s family increases” made me laugh aloud!
    Thank you so much for sharing these delightful and thoughtful cards.

  2. What a labor of love this is! I really like little line drawings’ providing a running commentary.

      Liz – The artist worked on several of Grandpa’s Christmas cards so you will see his work again. The commentary is all Grandpa. There are some much more creative cards coming in the future. It was a labor of love for Grandpa that he worked on for months before December arrived.

    That’s a wonderful poem about the Forgotten Grandpa.
