A Christmas card from Heatherwick

Season’s greetings from Thomas Heatherwick elevate the humble Christmas card to angelic heights

Plucked from the AR’s annual deluge of festive greetings is this miniature masterpiece from designer Thomas Heatherwick, who has a reputation for propelling the humble Christmas card to new heights of invention and delight.

This year’s confection is a version of an advent calendar, which, when opened, reveals an exquisite illustration by Sara Fanelli bearing the legend: ‘Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly’.
