Hanukkah: Arts & Architecture's Style

Finally. A Hanukkah card. And this crisp menorah interpretation kind of suggests Matisse's later work, at least in my eyes. But it's actually an adaptation of John Follis's design seen on the July 1958 cover of Arts & Architecture. Remember LACMA's Christmas tree cards from this November post? The Charles Kratka for Arts & Architecture designs? Both are now being offered to celebrate California Design, 1930–1965: "Living in a Modern Way," on view at the museum through June 3, 2012.

The original covers may be seen over at the Arts & Architecture Collection. Prints of the most popular magazine covers, including Follis Hanukkah, are available. Look for special discounts through Sunday, December 11.

Jacqueline -- yes, I think this 7-branched style is a temple menorah.
