-- The joy with which that glittering storefront window held Ralphie at bay is what led the formation of this design. Images of period gradient postcard skies and clever paper storefront tricks developed into a full 1940's parlor that disappeared with a wash of light. Carefully crafted shapes create a snow-laden wintry memory with which Ralphie relives his most fateful Christmas.
