Headless horsemen, ugly witches, devils, and demons — these frightful Halloween symbols have captured the imagination of young and old alike for generations. In the early decades of this century, though, not all images associated with this night of goblins and ghouls displayed sinister qualities — as revealed in these delightfully lighthearted cards issued between 1900 and 1930.
Bringing a fairy-tale quality to the holiday, these vintage cards (many with charming rhymes) recall the romantic nature of long-ago Halloweens with festive scenes of kids and cats, witches and bats, jack-o'-lanterns, fortune-telling, pranks, and white-sheeted ghosts.
Exhibiting the meticulous detail so highly prized among today's collectors, the 24 full-color cards in this captivating collection include now-rare illustrations by two popular artists of the period: Ellen Clapsaddle (1865–1934) and Frances Brundage (1854–1937), whose rosy-cheeked and startled youngsters became their trademarks.
Perfect for sharing warm thoughts of friendship during a magical night, these easily detachable cards are sure to please youngsters of all ages.
