One of our favourite things in the Tower Project is finding pictures to share on this blog. The tower collections have great illustrations, some beautiful, some funny, some just weird!  And this year two of our favourite pictures are available as part of a new selection of Christmas cards available from the University Library entrance hall, during library opening hours.

As well as the wonderful ‘Judy magazine’ Christmas pudding illustration (UL classmark 1895.9.91) and the picture of a Canadian train stuck in snow, taken from the Train scrap book (UL classmark 1906.12.1)  there are two beautiful illustrations taken from UL manuscripts and finally ‘Waiting for crumbs’ (UL classmark Waddleton.b.1.438)
