Not-a-Photo Friday: Season’s Greetings!

Kingswood Christmas Card, 1944. Cranbrook Archives.

As the holiday season swings into full gear, we thought we’d highlight one of our favorite historic Cranbrook traditions: the Kingswood School Christmas card. From 1944, this card features a woodblock print of Carl Milles’s Diana sculpture, one of the hallmarks of Kingswood’s campus. The Kingswood students who made it also managed to capture the movement and dynamic geometry of Eliel Saarinen’s remarkable leaded windows at Kingswood, a not-insignificant feat.
