Christmas with the Postcard Artists 1898-1940 by Peggy Hawksworth
Book DescriptionOn March 1, 2007, the United States picture postcard with a message space was 100 years old. From 1898 through the 1930s, there were millions of postcards sent back and forth across the Atlantic, admired, and saved in albums. Little was known about many of the artists. The purpose of this book was to design a literary work about the artists who documented an era when pen, paint, and brush ruled in the recording of daily scenes and events. Christmas folklore was chosen because it provided a wider representation of artists from around the world. There are samples of Art Nouveau, Art Deco, woodblock, silhouette and illustrations of the customs and Christmas figures. Postcard artists and illustrators have never received the same respect as those who created fine art. This book includes 300 artists' biographies of varying lengths and documents their lives and illustrations along with their accomplishments in fine art.
