Christmas with the Grabhorn Press
Special Collections has a large collection of the work of the Grabhorn Press, a San Francisco fine printing establishment founded in 1920 by brothers Edwin and Robert Grabhorn. The Grabhorn Collection is comprised of books, broadsides, and ephemeral pieces produced by the press over several decades, including this undated Christmas card sent by Edwin and his family. It features a linoleum block illustration by his daughter, Mary. These and other mid-century letterpress Christmas greeting cards can be found by searching the library catalog for “Grabhorn Press printer” or by using the location search feature and searching for “Grabhorn Press M Collection,” which houses the Grabhorn Press ephemera.
