Alexander Girard Christmas cardArchitect and designer Alexander Girard was extremely prolific during the 1960s and 1970s. I bet you’d recognize his work — take a look at this excellent video from a recent episode of CBS Sunday Morning (under 5 minutes long). This Christmas card an example of his skill with typography and lettering (his font, Sansusie, is one of my favs). He’s very much back in vogue: Girard’s family is reintroducing him to new generations with this websiteHouse Industries is selling a wooden Alexander Girard Nativity based on his characters, and there’s even an Alexander Girard coloring book!
