We Wish You a Crazy Christmas Postcard Book - 30 Unique Vintage Postcards
30 unique designs in a tear-out book, each with a vintage postcard back with a dividing line and stamp box
From the depths of our extensive collection of Victorian and Edwardian holiday postcards, we've plucked out these gems, taking you on a journey through a time when postcard creativity knew no bounds! The late 19th and early 20th centuries were a heyday for postcard publishing, with Christmas being a particularly popular subject. While most cards displayed traditional or religious themes, there was a delightful handful that dared to be different, dancing to the beat of their own drum. But it's the select few that boldly go beyond the realm of eccentricity into the territory of outright weirdness that have made it into our quirky collection. These cards invite you to ponder, laugh, and perhaps ask the age-old question, "Why?" And with each card, you'll find yourself tumbling further down the rabbit hole of the bizarre, with each image more confounding than the last. Keep this delightful history alive by sending a weird postcard this year! See our entire Postcard Enthusiast Collection!
The Golden Age of Postcards, spanning from spanning from the 1890s until World War I, witnessed an extraordinary surge in postcard collecting. This era saw the production, sale, and mailing of millions of postcards, and people acquired them simply for the sheer joy of ownership. These cherished cards found their place in carefully preserved albums or were exchanged among friends and family with the anticipation of receiving equally delightful ones in return. Essentially, postcards served as an affordable source of entertainment in nearly every American household. Visitors often marveled at the opulent postcard albums gracing parlors, living rooms, and sun porches. Beyond mere communication, picture postcards offered a vivid snapshot of American life, particularly during the initial decades of the 20th century. They were designed for every conceivable occasion, with a special emphasis on holidays!
