PFF - A Gracious Greeting Card





I bought this postcard because I liked the design, which I consider kind of a combination of Arts and Crafts style printing and Art Nouveau design. On examining the fine print I discovered that this card was ©1913 Geo. W. Parker Art Co. Minneapolis. Although I live in the Minneapolis area, this is the only postcard I have from that company.

  1. Lovely card! If you wanted to mail it overseas in 1913, you were supposed to put "your two cents". :)

  4. The whole thing, text and graphic, seems to flow in one languid movement. Lovely.

  5. Great design for a Greeting card, and I'm going to grab the image if you don't mind to keep as a model for lettering!

  8. Beautiful combination of image and typography. I like this late art nouveau style graphics that also have elements of the art déco style. Happy PFF.

  10. This card is so cute! I went digging around the local Thrifts/Rummages and even a few random Yard Sales the past month looking for Old Xmas Post cards. It's so weird that I used to see a lot of these, and now I see none at all. Great Find, and thanks for sharing it with us!
