Literary Calligraphy by Susan Loy


"THE TREE TOUCHED THE CEILING" Christmas Card
From Anais Nin

Tree Touched the Ceiling 8 cards, 4-1/2 x 5-1/2 with 8 white envelopes

The Christmas tree painting is based around a quote from the December 26 diary entry of the internationally-acclaimed author, Anais Nin. She spent her childhood in various parts of Europe until, at the age of eleven, she left Paris to live in the United States. Later she returned to Paris and became acquainted with many well-known writers and artists. The print features a Christmas tree, surrounded by the text with a holly trim.

"Oh the wonder of this Christmas day...The tree touched the ceiling and was heavy with tinsel and snow and candles -- but who can describe a Christmas tree? The scent of pine, the cheery mystery of the packages below, the charm of the very top star, the flickering little candles...The two rooms had been made cheerful and tidy and cozy -- cheerful because of holly and the season's flowers and mistletoe."

From THE EARLY DIARIES OF ANAIS NIN, 1920-1923. Copyright 1982 by the Anais Nin Trust.
