Overview

Taken from the book of the same title is a selection of the images of Halloween as celebrated in the early twentieth century, when it was a romantic holiday, a time for soothsaying traditions in love and luck.

The years from 1900 to 1918 are considered the "Golden Age of Postcards"-a time when lavishly designed and printed cards were exchanged at every available occasion. Halloween cards were extremely popular, full of all the vivid imagery of the occasion, and are highly sought-after collector's items today.

These beautifully illustrated postcards capture the essence of the romantic art and customs of yesteryear and are a delightful commemoration of America's fastest-growing holiday: Halloween.

Find out more about early twentieth-century Halloween celebrations in the companion book, Halloween: Romantic Art and Customs of Yesteryear.
