Harvard-Yenching's 2005 Holiday Greeting Cards Available

Each year since 1998, Harvard-Yenching Library has offered a series of holiday and note cards featuring images from interesting pieces in their collections. The images for the 2005 cards were selected by Kuniko McVey, Librarian for the Japanese Collection, and include a 1941 print by Yumeji Takehisa and a work by Koichi Gen compiled in the early Meiji period.

Both the holiday and note cards cost $9.50 for a box of 12 cards and envelopes and are available in the Harvard-Yenching Librarian's Office, Room 115, 2 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138. For more information contact Anna Dunavin at 617-495-3327 or dunavin@fas.harvard.edu.
