Holiday artwork from famous children's book illustrators is on display at Emporia State University.

A show called "Illustrating the Holidays" will remain on display through Jan. 25. It features holiday greetings sent to the late children's book editor May Massee. Before retiring in 1960, she published titles such as "Make Way for Ducklings," "Madeline and the Gypsies," "Corduroy," and "Pippi Longstockings."

The "Illustrating the Holidays" exhibit will draw from a collection of original book illustrations and other items from Massee's career, which are housed at Emporia State.

In addition to original artwork, there will be commercially printed cards created by some of the illustrators. Plus, the exhibit highlights the artwork of two holiday books from the May Massee Collection: "The Christmas Anna Angel" and "The Long Christmas."
