Blitzen Bokeh

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
“Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! on Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas – Clement C. Moore or Henry Livingston

What is Bokeh? According to Wikipedia, Bokeh (derived from Japanese bokeaji ボケ味, “blur”) is a photographic term referring to the appearance of out-of-focus areas in an image produced by a camera lens using a shallow depth of field.

The reindeer ornament pictured here is a pop up paper ornament designed by children’s pop up book creator •Robert Sabuda. The ornament was created exclusively for The Museum of Modern Art with proceeds going to support the museum’s programs. The museum features new ornaments each year and this year’s pop up ornaments can be purchased from the •MoMA Store.
