Useable . . . or . . . collectable ? Both.
In 1913, publisher Condé Nast launched Vanity Fair, a magazine that would celebrate the culture, politics, lifestyle and humour of the world's 'smart set'. In the publication's mission statement, editor Frank Crowninshield clearly revelled in that world: 'Young men and young women, full of courage, originality, and genius, are everywhere to be met with.'
Vanity Fair's famous philosophy of mixing up classes, races and sexes - as long as they were innovative, gorgeous or talented - was reflected in the dazzling and elegant magazine covers from such hugely influential designers as Paolo Garretto, William Cotton and Eduardo Garcia Benito.
These front covers are now a memorial to a world of glamour and excitement, gone - but not forgotten.

"Yes its 100 different real postcards. Actual postcards which can be posted through the mail, space on the back for address and message plus a few words about the subject. The quality is really very good, better than some postcards on sale from the racks. A nice sturdy box containing 100 nice sturdy useable postcards. Nothing to complain about here the quality and variety are top notch . . . Many original 1930's designs."
"A wonderful selection of postcards, depicting cultural & historic, some politically influenced images - I agree with some of the reviewers that these are too nice to use! The quality of the card is good. The talent of the artists for some of these covers is fabulous." - Google Reviews.
