They do not make cards like this anymore. . . they are utterly beguiling in simplicity and color.

Simple graphics in this Art Deco Era card are extraordinary – and the typography is striking. The message, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, comes to life.

The graphics in postcards in the 1950s are definitive. Indeed, they are historical artifacts . . . like this one.
