Welcome to our exclusive collection of vintage imagery. Since this is a personal passion, you can expect to see new stuff being added as we continue to “gather”.
A bit of background on the collection:
I had the great good fortune to have been born into a family of collectors (wow, what a surprise!). I always thought that everyone’s family was like ours. When we went on vacations we always came back with the car so loaded with rocks, shells, books, antiques, driftwood, and other assorted goodies that the frame barely cleared the pavement. Beyond a doubt I was genetically programmed to be interested in almost everything, and to consequently, pick up and collect the same.
Among his other interests, my father collected antique paper ephemera, including old ads, books, posters, and postcards. At the time of his death his postcard collection numbered over 100,00 individual pieces, which eventually was passed down to my sister and me.
Eventually we made the difficult decision to sell much of the collection, but not before I went through and put together my own private collection of those images that stirred my soul. You will not find these to be the average run of Victorian ladies, but rather the rarer (and sometimes naughty) French postcards, early street scenes, unusual advertising, bathing beauties, wild animals, etc., etc., etc.
And, with a “picture being worth a thousand words:, we are also including photos of some of the things that we have done with these images. I hope these strike a responsive chord in you, and that that spark ignites a whole new direction of creative ideas!
Our images are 1200 dots per inch (dpi) resolution and heat-set copied (which allows you to do “wet” work) onto high, photographic quality paper. Original images vary in size, and we reproduce them as large as possible on an 8-1/2” x 11” sheet. Images (same image per sheet) may be ordered in the following configurations:
Available in: Image Pricing: $6.00 per sheet
