This post is part of an ongoing series on a 1969 advertising supplement published in the New York Times which featured work by students of Art Center College of Design. If you’d like to see more, please click here.

Created by an artist named Pippa Garner, nee Philip Vincent Garner, the Russian matryoshka dolls in this stunning ad depict a traditional Christmas story.

There’s Jesus, the savior whose birth we celebrate. And Santa Claus who brings gifts for the children. But there are also three Salvation Army officers who make sure Christ is honored and needs are met in His name.

The ad copy says:
“Christmastime. A joy through the world time of celebration. A glittering tinsel time. Because of the Army there are toys and gifts for the orphans and the old ones. For all men are one in the spirit of Christ.”

Stay tuned for next Friday’s featured artwork from our recently-unearthed, groovy 1969 ad supplement!
