INSIDE GREETING: Congratulations

"... and then he coaxed her down and took her home." From the pages of Kay Nielsen's seminal book, East of the Sun and West of the Moon (1914), comes this romantic scene from the Norwegian fairy tale The Lassie and Her Godmother, depicting the titular lassie and her prince. It's a disturbing tale to modern readers, but you wouldn't know it from this happy ending! As a greeting card, it's fitting to celebrate a sweet couple's happily ever after moment.

Kay Nielsen (1886–1957) was a Danish illustrator known for his exquisite illustrations of fairy tales and folklore. Born in Copenhagen, Nielsen studied art in Paris before starting his career as an illustrator. His early work garnered attention for its intricate detail and unique style, leading to commissions for various publications and projects. His illustrations often featured delicate lines, rich colors, and a dreamlike quality that captivated viewers. He gained international acclaim for his contributions to the illustration field, particularly his illustrations of fairy tales such as East of the Sun and West of the Moon (1914). He collaborated with Disney on many story sketches and illustrations, notably for Fantasia. His initial work stood out because he used a 4-color process, contrasting with the traditional 3-color process many of his contemporaries used. Unsurprisingly, given his parents' involvement in theater, he returned to set decoration and costume design throughout his career. Nielsen's timeless illustrations inspire artists and enchant audiences with their unparalleled beauty.
