Newsnote: Vincentiana Purchase of the Week “Buglose/Berceau Holy Card.”

The Vincentiana Collection at DePaul University’s Archives and Special Collections recently purchased the c. turn of the 20th century photographic pastiche of images from the life of Saint Vincent branded, if you will, with the image of Our Lady of Buglose and the Berceau. The image while primitively done packs a lot of narrative into a small space. Usually these types of cards were amateur productions done when cameras became common enough (and cheap enough) to be taken up as a hobby.
