These postcards were just what my wife wanted for a card making project. They were a great find and allowed her to do the project as she had envisioned.

These were pretty and authentic looking and easy to mail. I found some of them to be a little too romantic to send to friends but overall thought this set was a wonderful value and loved the pictures.

天使、子供たち、ハート、お花・・・豪華なビクトリアンの世界が好きな方にはとてもお勧めです。1908年から1917年当時に実際に作られたポストカード24枚のリプロダクションです。天使(cherub)のカード16枚、子供のカード5枚、お花のみのデザイン3枚、その他1枚といった感じです(重複カウントあり)。
買う前は、表紙の絵はかわいいけれど中身はどうだろうとドキドキでしたが、届いて中を見た途端、これは正解だと思いました。アンティークのポストカードは、エンボスや色のあせ具合に味があるので、リプロダクションは本来あまり好きではないのですが、こちらの本のカードはそういうものを差し引いても、絵柄を見るだけでも楽しいコレクションだと思います。実際に使用するのはもちろん、このようなものがお好きな方へのプレゼントにしても、喜ばれると思います。
