Ellen Clapsaddle (1865-1934) was an American artist celebrated for her immense impact on the world of vintage postcard illustration. With a staggering portfolio of over 3,000 designs in the souvenir postcard field, she played a pivotal role in the Golden Age of Postcards (1890s through World War I), during which hundreds of millions of postcards were printed, imported, sold, and mailed. Clapsaddle's artistry is beautifully preserved in these cherished pieces of nostalgia, often featuring children, floral arrangements, and holiday themes. Her profound influence even extended to postage stamps through the United States Postal Service, solidifying her status as a true pioneer in the art of postcard illustration.
