Wicked Witches And Creepy Cats: A Halloween Postcard Book

Only when darkness comes does Halloween truly begin.  Night is the time for mystery, for devilry, for fright.  All manner of mysterious and sometimes frightening creatures emerge from the shadows, including the two featured in our Wicked Witches and Creepy Cats: A Halloween Postcard Book. Along with the pumpkin, the witch and her feline familiar are the most enduring symbols of All Hallows’ Eve, and thus are richly represented in the many Halloween postcards that were printed  in the picture postcard’s Golden Age (1890 to World War 1.) Our selection of 30 witch and black cat images include the mildly frightening witch, the adorable child witch, the pretty lady witch,  one rather odd witch driving a roadster and many very fine black cats.

These are fun postcards. All images are vintage and in the public domain. Some are sweet little Halloween wishes. Some are meant to be scary.Postcards were popular in the decades around the turn into the 20th century. So 19 of the postcards in the set are reproductions of real postcards. Another 2 are of magazine covers, 2 are advertisements and 1 an illustration.The last six are copies of vintage Halloween decorations and these are a little disappointing, as they just look like broadly-drawn cartoons.Each card is 6 7/16" x 4 ¾" with a glossy finish. The cardstock used is of decent thickness, but not super-thick, so regular postcard postage will do. The cards are perforated and come in a stapled stack between covers. For the most part, they come out smoothly as long as you take them out in order. It is pretty much impossible to take a postcard out cleanly from the middle of the set. I get by this by removing all the postcards in the beginning. Then I store them within the cover using a rubber band.Overall, a nice seasonal set, published by Laughing Elephant.Happy Reader

This is an excellent reproduction of old Halloween postcards. Made at a time when Halloween was more of an adult festival than the childrens scare day of today. I especially like the old style of drawing spooky scenes over the silly or downright gruesome and bloody scenes that pass for Halloween today. The cards can be saved in their book form, removed and displayed, or sent in the mail. An excellent collection that would cost a small fortune if bought as originals. Highly Recommended.

Recently decorated my mantle with vintage post cards and emailed few off too friends and family afar. Fun and thoughtful. Delivery is always timely and quality of products supersede my expectations. 5 star's!

Halloween is my favorite holiday! has all the trick or trick goodies that keep the kid in me alive. These postcards are really cool. Nice to see what went on back in the day. This will be a great gift for my Halloween party!

Most of the cards are very nice, but with any collection like this there are a few that are not that nice. Good quality, nice colors. I cut them out and made Halloween cards and everyone liked them.

I am a member of postcrossing and sent several of these overseas and everyone has just loved them! What's not to like? They're vintage AND they're Halloween!

This book contains many of the same cards as other halloween postcard books, but the images are the full 5x7 size without the white border found on a lot of the other books. Gorgeous images, glossy, and tear out easily! Would highly recommend for anyone who loves witches, cats, and halloween!

I take issue when things aren't properly credited. Beistle (uncredited here) is easy to spot. A lot of uncredited artwork. An author who doesn't do her homework is lazy. Also the images are too glossy.
