Holiday Cards - "Jake"


Happy holidays from Red Cloud! These bi-fold cards are printed on matte stock with matching white envelopes and feature one-of-a-kind artwork and holiday quotes from Willa Cather.

This card features a print of “Jake” by W.T. Benda. Willa Cather commissioned W. T. Benda to create pen-and-ink drawings for the book My Ántonia, eight were published in the novel when it was released in 1918.

Inside Message:  "At last I saw a dark spot moving on the west hill, beside the half-buried cornfield, where the sky was taking on a coppery flush from the sun that did not quite break through. I put on my cap and ran out to meet Jake. When I got to the pond, I could see that he was bringing in a little cedar tree across his pommel. He used to help my father cut Christmas trees for me in Virginia, and he had not forgotten how much I liked them." - My Ántonia
