This is a collection of 30 vintage Halloween oversized postcards. These retro Halloween postcard images are perfect for lovers of "creepy cute," because that's how we'd describe this imagery.
These postcards are genuinely creepy reproductions of antique "turn of the century" postcards. We've found that what was thought to be charming and cute "back in the day," frequently now reads as extremely creepy. For example, one of these postcards features a giant oversized pumpkin head on the body of a little girl. Or the image of two terrified children hiding in their room, while a demonic horde tries to come in through the window. Luckily, they seem to have placed some sort of supernatural ward on their window frame. Awesome, and terrifying at once!
One reads, "I'm the Mysterious Hallowe'en Man. Look out! I shall find you - I am right behind you! The Mysterious Hallowe'en Man." We're guessing that sentiment wouldn't fly in children's decorations today! ; )
These would make gorgeous retro Halloween party decorations, scrapbook decorations or you could use them for collage. You could, of course, also use them for their intended purpose and send them to friends and family.
Halloween has always been a favorite holiday of ours. We collect the originals of many of these vintage postcards, but now you don't have to hunt through Estate sales and fend off the silverfish for cards with these delightfully creepy images.
This collection is presented in shiny new cardstock, no musty "Grandma's attic" smell included!
During the great era of postcard publishing (which dated from the 1890's until World War I) a great many different designs for postcards were produced. Holidays were a favorite time to send postcards, and as Halloween was second only to Christmas as a card sending occasion, Halloween themed cards abounded. The imagery of these cards is varied, appealing, and dramatic. Our selections use the familiar imagery of Halloween - pumpkins, ghosts, witches, and black cats.
This postcard book measures: 7" x 4 3/4" x 1/4"
