Jolly Old Saint Nicholas

Merry Christmas!

Steven Heller explains how Santa Claus came to be known for his snowy white beard and red suit by looking back at the illustrators who gave life to this now iconic image.

The Santa above is by Raymond Pratt from the 1952 "What's New" by Abbott Laboratories.

Dig Steven Heller's: ’Twas the Icon of Christmas.

That's Right,


Gracias: AIGA and ElectroSpark for the groovy Santa image.
