OK, shall we turn this into a Merry Christmas with pictures thread?

Here's a nice looking seasonal Ludlow slug.

Love the font!

Wrong apostrophe!

Thanks for those of you who pointed out that the wrong apostrophe had been used on this slug.

They've used the high apostrophe, which is meant to be used among capital letters (eg D'Arcey) instead of the the lower apostrophe for use among lower case letters.

Being an ex-newspaper man I've got to admit that I didn't spot the error, but now it seems glaringly obvious.

If Santa loads that onto his sleigh, he will need eighty tiny reindeer.

One more old Christmas printed item, a matchbook cover, from the Old Bookbinder's Restaurant, Philadelphia.
