    The holiday cards arrived in a neat and tidy clear lidded stationary box. The print's image is perfectly reproduced in subdued colors and simple detail.

    "Carrying the Christmas Tree" by Raphael Kirchner, is simply a sweet and heart warming lithograph image. To create a reproduction for holiday cards of Kirchner's subtle print was a wonderful idea.

    The arm around the back and closeness of purpose of the two characters depicted as opposite genders , looking back to the town and church steeple with their tree was a fine image to anchor this year.
