Easter Traditions in Graphic Design

Old Vintage Black and White Easter

 

Easter comes early this year.  In DC we find the idea of the White House Easter Egg Roll enchanting.  Here’s what it looked like in earlier days:

Different places have different Easter traditions.  My father was Hungarian and I remember making with him ‘piros tojás’ or red eggs for Easter.  The eggs are dyed red and then a needle is used to scratch out a pattern.  These are often intricate and very beautiful

People have sent each other Easter Cards for a long time – and I like that this card is also a paper doll!
