Here are three holiday books for Thanksgiving and Christmas, a way of savoring and passing on the traditional poems and songs of the season.

Each is approximately 4 ½ x 5 ½ size, slightly larger than a standard postcard. I print these books on 70 lb. linen paper, so you can feel the heft of the pages and see the weave of the paper. My illustrations are drawn from my personal collection of vintage seasonal images and decorative capitals, the “show ponies” of the alphabet. I hand fold the paper, cut it to size, and hand sew the binding with binders’ linen thread.

I cover front and back illustrations with transparent Japanese paper, yes, to protect the pages, but also because when I was young I was fascinated by the gauzy papers used to cover illustrations. What delight to see the fuzzy images beneath and then turn the page for the full effect? My covers use decorated paper appropriate to each title. These charming books are meant to be taken out and read every holiday season and also to be kept as heirlooms to be savored every year.

I sell each book separately, and you can see more of the interiors of these three books by clicking on the pictures of the individual books in my store.

I am including my three holiday books in a specially priced series: the perennial favorite Thanksgiving song, “Over the River and Through the Woods,” the next, the Christmas Eve poem, “The Night before Christmas,” and the final book, “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”
