Pictures in the Post: The Story of the Picture Postcard

£24.99

Product description

The Gordon Fraser Gallery, Ltd. 1971. Carline, Richard. DJ Condition: very good. Condition: very good. Slight browning and signs of wear at edges of DJ. Inscription on first page. Browning at edges of pages. Spine and pages still in good condition.

"Pictures in the Post is not only essential reading for the postcard enthusiast, but will also entertain and inform anyone interestred in the development of the public's taste in popular art. Richard Carline pioneerd the fascinating story of the picture postcard craze, and with the previous edition of this book was the first to place the story of the picture postcard in its historical, social and artistic setting. The author has now revised and increased the scope of his book to provide much additional information and illustrative material, particularly concerning the world-wide aspects of the postcard's history. This book is much more than a diverting record of one feature of the Victorian and Edwardian social scene; the author, in his analysis of his material as an index of popular taste, combines the insight of a painter with his special knowledge of the history and origins of the picture postcard. This is an unusual book, unusual in its point of view, its conclusions and its refreshing excursion into a neglected bypath of social history." - inside DJ cover
