Many unique and inspiring designs of the pumpkins, witches, and other scary images associated with this ancient holiday.

Before the telegraph and telephone, postcards were the primary form of social communication. Today these postcards are treasured artifacts as well as important historical documents from around the world. Author Pamela Apkarian-Russell memorializes the artists while tracking the progression of time, and the evolution of taste, through this simple and elegant form of communication. Her research on the artists and wide array of subject matter they depicted yields a compelling and unique history, told here for the first time. The entire family will enjoy the nostalgic, holiday-by-holiay visual journey; artists will find the graphic presentation informative and inspirational; and the legions of postcard collectors won’t be without it.
  • These postcards are truly works of art. Compare these oldies to today's postcards and you will be greatly disappointed with the apparent lack of artistry and imagination that goes in to current postcard design. Each postcard is a wonderful reminder of a more intimate time, when getting a postcard was an event. Praise must go to the authors for compiling a wonderful collection and presenting it to the reader.

  • Postmarked yesteryear art of the holidays is a wonderful collection of postcards. It was much more then I expected, the colors are lovely. The best postcard book I have.

  • I purchased this book used. When I received it was in WONDERFUL condition and I just love the illustrations. I do have one problem with this book--it is falling away from the spine! I haven't handled it roughly so I think the problem is the shape of the book and the pages are so heavy.

  • Really the only thing that was good about this one was that it was in color. I ordered another one which was much better but it was not in color which took away from it. Not recommended.

  • The art on the postcard is the focus and this book does a great job of picturing different views of the holidays. Starting with a brief history of the post card and publishers, she then presents some common symbolism. She moves through the year, covering each of the holidays. At New Year's are images of pigs pulling a coach. On Valentines days is the "Penny Dreadful", with ill wishes from someone you may have wronged. At Christmas are Louis Wain's cats, which can be rare (and the relative prices of the cards are indicated). She includes holidays not commonly celebrated in the states today, such as Guy Fawkes Day, the Mexican Day of the Dead, and Krampus. Because of her own collection, the images of Halloween are spectacular and a highlight of the book. My only minor complaint would be that on some of the light backgrounds her annotations are hard to read.

  • If you have any interest in vintage holiday postcards, or just an interest in "holiday history/graphic symbolism", this wonderful book is a "must-own". The examples shown, and the writing in general, could not have been better. It is NOT a book you put on the shelf and forget about. Joe Hohmann, Media, PA

  • These are great postcards. They are so unique. Sadly, they are not publishing them anymore. Very neat, innocent art on each one. A quality book.
