8 Illustrated Reindeer

As both a Christmas and general woodland fan, I obviously know all the names of Santa's reindeer. There's Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and, of course, Rudolph. When doing my Christmas research however I was surprised to read that there were originally only 8 reindeer and Rudolph was added to the gang in the 20th century. To pay homage to the original cast, below I have rounded up 8 beautifully illustrated, red-nose-free reindeer from some of my favourite artists...(sorry for missing you out Rudolph, but you get more than enough attention!)...
