Camp Christmas Cards from the Miss Breed Collection
San Diego children’s librarian Clara Breed became an unlikely hero to Japanese American youth in one of America’s concentration camps. Some 250 letters Miss Breed saved from wartime correspondences with the students are part of the National Museum’s permanent collection. Included among the letters are handmade holiday cards that were crafted in camp.
We have reproduced five of those designs to make these vintage-style cards. Although they, at first glance, appear to be typical vintage holiday images, upon closer inspection, each displays a subtle statement of the circumstances in which they were created. Each 5" x 7" card is blank inside. Five designs to select from.
Cat and Cactus is out of print.
