Holkham Orchard Cards

The British Library
Christmas cards reproducing an exquisite detail of birds - including a robin, wren, pelican and goldfinch - singing in the Garden of Eden, from a miniature illustrating the Holkham Bible Picture Book, produced in England, c.1320-30. Birds were imbued with a rich Christian symbolism in the middle ages, with different birds reflecting different meanings: the pelican symbolised Christ's sacrifice, the wren stood for the Holy Spirit, and goldfinches recall Christ's Passion.

Printed 'Season's Greetings'.
8 ½" x 4".

I like the cards very much but I thought they were Christmas cards and I don''t think they are. If they are meant to be then I don''t think they are particularly appropriate but if they aren''t then that is my mistake.
