Real Photo Postcards: Unbelievable Images from the Collection of Harvey Tulcensky by Laetitia Wolff
The book is a selection from Harvey Tulcensky's private collection of real photo postcards from the turn of the century (predominantly early 1900s). The cards are real silver gelatine printed photos depicting Americana, the pioneer life in the West, rural and city life, Main Street, the development of technology, transport, arts, electrical light, etc. Lots of the cards are surrealist photo-montages and exaggeration cards; they show fairgrounds, circuses, collages, people, etc. The book documents the very first steps of amateur photography (although some were taken by professionals in studios). They are beautiful photographs in a 3X5" format.
