Happy New Year!

By: Lori Williamson | Item of the Day | January 1, 2021

Finally! It's about time!
This New Year's card was illustrated and signed by Vernon V. Green. The black and white cover illustration shows Father Time, holding an hourglass and scythe and dressed in a robe marked "1936," turning away from Baby New Year, who sits on a throne and wears a crown marked "1937."
All best to you and yours for the year ahead!
