The Rosenberg Christmas card
A unique Christmas card design with a patriotic illustration by First World War poet Issac Rosenberg. He submitted the design and the poem for the 40th Division Christmas card in 1917, but it was not chosen.
Written beside the poem, not in Rosenberg’s hand, is ‘spelling incorrect’, ‘Beaucamp’ referring to Rosenberg’s misspelling of the name (as ‘Beachamps’) in his accompanying drawing, and ‘original poetry’.
The original belongs to the British Library / The Isaac Rosenberg Literary Estate. This image is
