This book will serve generations to come as the definitive book on buying and collecting the beautiful, 1930s to 1950s era large letter linen postcards. Over 2,300 large letter postcards are documented, with a carefully researched value for each card. This will assist dealers to fairly price their postcards and protect the collector from overpaying. There is a detailed history of the postcards and information about the designers and manufacturers. Graphic artists will find inspiration for new approaches to art and advertising. A wide assortment of colorful cards was selected to be shown big, making this a wonderful coffee table book, with crossover appeal in collecting, advertising, graphic design, historical research, and arts and crafts.
