Product Description

From the Back Cover

Headless horsemen, ugly witches, devils, and demons--these frightful Halloween symbols have captured the imagination of young and old alike for generations. In the early decades of this century, though, not all images associated with this night of goblins and ghouls displayed sinister qualities--as revealed in these delightfully lighthearted cards issued between 1900 and 1930.
Bringing a fairy-tale quality to the holiday, these vintage cards (many with charming rhymes) recall the romantic nature of long-ago Halloweens with festive scenes of kids and cats, witches and bats, jack-o'-lanterns, fortune-telling, pranks, and white-sheeted ghosts.
Exhibiting the meticulous detail so highly prized among today's collectors, the 24 full-color cards in this captivating collection include now-rare illustrations by two popular artists of the period: Ellen Clapsaddle (1865-1934) and Frances Brundage (1854-1937), whose rosy-cheeked and startled youngsters became their trademarks.
Perfect for sharing warm thoughts of friendship during a magical night, these easily detachable cards are sure to please youngsters of all ages.

I really like these post cards, the presentation in the book is really good but im most looking forward to seperating them all and giving them to family and friends for Halloween. They are good quality and theres a really good selection of pictures.

Beautiful!

If you're a true Halloween lover, you will love these.

Old fashioned, vintage, timeless. Very high quality glossy prints on good card. So good that i bought this book to separate the cards to send to friends in the US and Canada, and when i received it bought another straight away to keep as it is. It's that nice.

I hate what has become of Halloween, with all the gory associations of the modern day. These postcards are sweet and cute, and not at all frightful. They are great quality, great price, and fun to send. Or to use for craft projects. Highly recommend these, and any Dover products.
