I always, if asked, say that I enjoy postcards showing art of any type. As a result I've received art of almost every description and, of course I realise now there are some styles I like more than others. Great favourites of mine are book illustrations such as the ones above.

I don't know if I can describe this second group as illustration. They are reproductions of covers of books and magazines.  Now, is that cover art? Or could they be described as illustrations too?


  1. Love love LOVE your blog! So glad I came across it from the A-Z Challenge! Look forward to seeing all the other posts from your challenge. Dropping by from for the A-Z :)

  2. Those are some great cover art. I too like the artwork on books. How cool to have them on a postcard. :)

  3. Oh they are beautiful! The Alice in Wonderland with the caterpillar!

  4. These are great postcards and they are art, to me anyway. The one book cover postcard is done by Alphonse Mucha

  5. I love your collection of book art postcards. How fun! I've never thought of collecting postcards like this! Then again, I rarely see these types of postcards in the store. Did you collect these while traveling or at a particular type of store? … or were they sent to you?

    I look forward to seeing more of your A-Z postcard posts this month! :) Loving your challenge so far!

  6. Love the New Yorker ones! I arrived at your blog via my friend Alex's Family Tree Frog blog.
