Postcards, greeting cards
A postcard (originally an open letter) is a special kind of postcard for an open letter (without an envelope). Postcards first appeared in Austria on October 1, 1869. Initially, they were without images, but people themselves began to draw pictures and merchants quickly started issuing postcards with drawings. In Russia, the postcard was released in 1872, the first Soviet postcards date back to November 1917. In 1878, the International Postcard Standard was adopted at the Universal Postal Congress in Paris: 9 × 14 cm, which was changed to another 1025 × 14.8 cm in 1925. Now in Russia, postcards are published mainly in 10.5 x formats 21 cm and 12 x 18.5 cm. Collecting cards is called filocarty. Despite the short history of this type of printing products, the space for a collector is very large both in subject and geography. For postcards drew a variety of artists, in the USSR the artist’s name was necessarily present on the postcard, there was also a release date - which really helps the collector. Most of the foreign, pre-revolutionary and modern Russian publishers of the author of the figure does not indicate. But on the other hand, many private publishers have appeared - who respect the authors, as well as the artists themselves began to issue author postcards. Such publications usually have a small circulation and very soon will be rarities. I emphasize the greeting cards, the drawings on them have the magic of the holiday and a good positive mood, because each artist has put the best part of his soul into the drawing. A lot of collectors collect postcards of authorship of certain artists, in Russia the most popular artist Vladimir Zarubin, he has created a gallery of charming works for his many years of creative life. And there are a lot of artists who worked in the past and are working now. Plunge into the world of beauty!
