These are super fun and I'm a fan of the cards and stickers Dover offers--rarely run-of-the-mill. I am a Tom Tierney fan, too; his paper doll collections are exquisite. But ultimately I find these are better for just collecting than mailing. The paper is quite thin and VERY flexible. International mail (I'm a Postcrosser) is not always the kindest, so I worry these could be very easily damaged in transit.Though the fashion selections are adorable and eye-catching and have NO repeats, the cheapy perforation makes removing each card a real pain in the neck and leaves a little serated edge that screams: budget postcards. If I mail one, I add a heavier stock address label and a few stickers to bulk it up; despite the glossy finish, these feel like basically mailing off a slip of paper...one as delicate as 1920s Chanel lingerie. I've yet to have one successfully reach the recipient so I'll keep waiting/crossing fingers.5 stars for selection and art quality2 stars for durability as an actual postal piece
The 24 postcards are gorgeous, shiny and colorful. The fashions are diverse-- most are elegant, a few are kind of funny, but all are interesting. You do have to be pretty careful tearing them out along the perforations. For the price, you can't beat this collection of postcards!
This was a perfect gift for someone I know that prefers corresponding via post cards and also adores vintage clothes. The price was very reasonable for this successful purchase.
A great thing to have on hand & I will buy it again
