A very old book, special enough for someone to save in a drawer for many years. I've always loved holly. You can grow it in Minnesota, but I've never had the full, bushy glossy bushes that you see in other climates.
Old gold holly and red berries - I like the stylized 'layering' in old clipart - the freeform holly with the geometric circles.
Wrapped around that 'O' again~
The motif on the left is repeated on each page of the story~
