In the Present

The running joke around the office this past summer was that stylist Ed Gallagher was a lost elf, wandering aimlessly around in the wrong season spreading holiday cheer when no one really needed it.  Like drinking egg nog on the beach.  Except that everyone always needs holiday cheer - especially publishers getting ready for the big season.  Christmas in July.  And now all the beautiful things he created are finally getting love - like these delightful openers for Better Homes and Gardens, shot by the 'photographer to remember' Dana Gallagher - and the bonus cookies by Carrie Purcell.  Santa can't wait to land at her house.
