yuletide carols

inspiration

friends of the swanton public library in swanton, ohio, hosted an annual holiday home tour to raise monies to support and enhance library facilities, materials, services and programs. they required a limited edition, all-in-one admission ticket, event program and souvenir favor, featuring photographs, addresses and descriptions of each decorated home on the self-guided tour. "on the seventh day of christmas my true love sent to me seven swans-a-swimming..." lyrics from the twelve days of christmas yuletide carol, arranged by frederic austin in 1909, seemed a perfect nod to the quaint village of swanton. After the event, the envelope accordion book could be refilled for gift card giving, holiday photo bragging and store receipt wrangling.
