Those who attended Dr. Michael Peich's presentation about the series of Christmas cards produced at Aralia Press were treated to a fascinating talk about how Dr. Peich began this annual tradition and the process for selecting poems and artwork, and the layout , printing and coloring for the fine cards. In addition there was a display of the cards and the opportunity to talk informally with Dr. Peich and his artistic colleagues. A special holiday treat was copies of the brand-new 2011 card!
