A few years ago my husband gave me a box of 100 Vintage Vanity Fair Postcards. The collection is wonderful, and I’ve sent many of my favorites already to family and friends. Although the boxed set contains quite a variety of artistic styles, my favorites are the less painterly, more geometric and playful illustrations. I envy these compositions for their sophisticated simplicity. Looking at these images always makes me happy – and inspires me to find the magical formula for my own art.
Here are my favorites:
Who doesn’t love these!
🙂 Glad you like them, too!

I agree, I love the stylized figures!
They are stylized, yet so human and appealing at the same time. Which is why I love them.
Hope you are doing well! Andy is in Milwaukee this week, so if you see someone who looks like him, go ahead and wave.

These are too, too cute. I love these! I bet they were fun looking through!
Hi Celeste, I think I’ll hold onto those 4 cards…the only ones I have left of that particular artist and style. I still have probably 50 of the 100 cards that came in the box, but none rate as high on the cuteness (or make-me-smile) meter.
We’re getting some lovely sunny and warm weather here in the Big Apple today. I hope you are getting some nice spring days now, too!
