Book Review: Beauty and the Beast: Human-Animal Relations as Revealed in Real Photo Postcards, 1905-1935

I recently read the book Beauty and the Beast about human-animal relations as shown in real photo postcards. While this book had a lot of great images in it, it also had a lot of great information. It can be hard to find a good book about postcards that isn’t just a picture book. There were chapters that were dedicated to animals as mascots, animals as pets, animals as vermin, and all the other roles animals have played in the lives of humans. It was a very informative read, and some of Leonard Lauder’s postcards were used as examples, among other collections.image
