Does your family still exchange books at Christmas?

During December and January the Redland Museum will have on display its large collection of children’s Annuals and favourite books such as Charles Dicken’s ‘A Christmas Carol’ together with nostalgic Christmas cards and postcards sent from France by soldiers in the First World War.
Publishers of magazines and periodicals introduced ‘Annuals’ during the first decades of the 19th Century. By the late 1800s, the genre of children’s annuals developed rapidly. Publishers competed for their share of this emerging, and increasingly literate, reading audience. The ‘Boy’s Own Annual’ and the ‘Girl’s Own Annual’ engrossed young readers with adventure stories for boys and educational articles for girls.
Recall the stories of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five and of W.E. Johns pilot and adventurer ‘Biggles’. Many of our favourite children’s books by Australian authors will bring back memories of ‘Snugglepot and Cuddlepie’, ‘The Magic Pudding’ and ‘Blinky Bill’.
Popular with the soldiers fighting in the First World War, embroidered silk postcards were sent home, usually mailed with letters. Their designs were patriotic or sentimental, showing the bright colours of the threads to best effect. Flags, butterfly wings, bird plumage and rainbows feature strongly together with a few words embroidered often with a Christmas message.

Celebrate the holiday season together, with a visit to the “Room for Reading” exhibition at Redland Museum, journeying into the past and sharing memories of books received as presents.
