Donald McGill’s slightly ‘saucy’ Christmas cards

Have you started handing out the Christmas cards yet? No me either. Highly unorganised I’m afraid! :S

A museum has just uncovered a collection of Christmas cards by saucy postcard artist Donald McGill and the PlentyMoreFish team find them pretty quirky. You may have heard of McGill through his comic seaside cards, but now it has been discovered he also produced 250 different Christmas designs over six decades. He published saucy festive scenes from 1904 onwards, featuring his trademark plump wives, big-breasted women, balding bachelors and mischievous maids.

Anyway take a look at these, you could may even get some ideas for Christmas cards or “kiss-miss” cards… 😉
