My coverage of the 2013 Christmas designs continues today with a look at Nineteen Seventy Three. This year the Hove based publishers have a fabulous mitten themed collection with mitten shaped cards, gift tags, and co-ordinating 'Christmas jumper' wrapping paper. The designs are in stockists now - I bought mine in Blackwells Art & Bookshop in Oxford. To see more from the Nineteen Seventy Three collection click here.
