Christmas Cards

Harper’s Bazaar Christmas Cards

Looking back at Bazaars of Christmas past, it’s hard not to conclude that the festive season, though never short on sparkle, had its design heyday during the age of art deco,” writes associate editor Ajesh Patalay in Bazaar’s December issue.  It’s for this very reason that we delved through the archves to find five festive covers from the 1930s and ’40s – which make the perfect Christmas cards.

Available to purchase exclusively from the V&A Museum shop (£7.50 for a pack of 12 assorted), or free with newsstand copies of Bazaar’s December issue.
