New Postcard Book Alert

Ok, so this book isn’t too new since it was published in October ’12, but I was just looking online to find out more about Leonard Lauder’s postcard collection. There is a book called The Postcard Age: Selections from the Leonard A. Lauder Collection. As some of you may know, there was an exhibit in Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts that showcased cards from Lauder’s collection starting in October ’12 through April ’14. You can read more about the exhibit on their website here and find the book here.

I am currently reading another book about postcards that shows some from his collection, so that got me interested in what other cards are in his collection. Once I finish that book, I’ll be sure to do a book review!

    I have the book. I am going to have to read it again. There are lots of beautiful pictures in it. The postcards are mostly the rare and expensive type, and mainly European.
