NameMessages from the Postcard Age: Lauder Postcards
DescriptionThe numbers are staggering—a billion cards passed through the German postal system in 1903, and the British used 833 million stamps for postcards in 1909. The turn of the 20th century saw a craze for postcards, which were once the most speedy way to communicate, disseminating photographs of current events even faster than newspapers. Leonard A. Lauder outlines the contributions by renowned avant-garde artists such as Emil Nolde and Wassily Kandinsky, and provides personal insights into his own collecting, revealing why he has found the postcard to be such a fulfilling pursuit for more than half a century.
