It’s not for nothing that Dolph Gotelli is known as “Father Christmas.” His collection of holiday ornaments, toys, books, and games is truly second to none. And, lucky for us, he loves to share his treasure trove through displays, presentations, and now, a gorgeous new book he is bringing to Castle in the Air.
Wonder & Delight: A Dolph Gotelli Christmas will take you on a journey back to childhood as you revel in more than 550 photographs and hundreds of pages of history on the objects that make this holiday so enchanting. Dolph’s collection covers the breadth of Christmas from the holy to the whimsical, with hundreds of devotional saints, jolly Santas, sparkling winter scenes, and even a tree-trimming witch.
Dolph will give a presentation about his collection and the book beginning at 2 pm, and afterward will be happy to sign copies and meet everyone who comes out to this special gathering. You will also have a chance to see Castle in the Air’s expanded collection of antique Christmas ornaments unveiled especially for this event. Don’t miss out on your chance to meet a legendary collector and take home a bit of holiday magic.
