Pequot Library offers "Good Wishes from Robert Frost: Twenty-five Years of Christmas Cards," an exhibition of Robert Frost's holiday cards, through Sunday, Jan. 6. There will be a reception at the library from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2.

For 25 years, Frost collaborated with the Spiral Press and several artists to create unique Christmas cards to be sent by the Frost family and by Frost's publishers, according to a release.

The artists involved include Thomas W. Nason, J.J. Lankes, Fritz Eichenberg, Philip Grushkin, Howard Norton Cook, Leo Manso, Linn Lloyd Benton, Stefan Martin, Antonio Frasconi and Joseph Low.

The Spiral Press was founded by Joseph Blumenthal in 1926. He and Frost became friends during their collaboration on the cards.

The cards have been loaned to the library by Elinor Wilber, one of Frost's granddaughters.

Pamela Hovland, guest curator and senior critic in graphic design at Yale University, will comment on the cards' design during the reception. Remarks on Frost by author and educator Lesley Lee Francis, who is also Frost's granddaughter, will follow.
