Magical, magical cards

Magical, magical cards. I can't think of Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales without thinking of Dulac's Illustrations. Dulac in 1924 began producing illustrations for The American Weekly. Ideal for sending brief notes to art lovers, these enthralling cards will delight fiary tale enthusiasts as well. Halfway through his final book commission, Milton's Comus, Dulac died of a heart attack in 1953. Books by Edmund Dulac.

Based on other reviews, maybe I received a bad batch, but I think the quality of these prints is just terrible. The colors are very muted and dull, often to the point of finding it difficult to tell what the picture is about. I had previous bought the set of 12 fairy tale postcards by Dover, which is fantastic. Since this is about the same price, I thought I would get twice as many as those great postcards, but that was not the case. I have not sent most of these. I will buy the 12-card set, which has better subject matter and far better colors, for the same price. And those cards do not have perforation, either. (I use a paper cutter to get a straight edge, but it's not worth it for these cards.)

I bought these to use for Postcrossing. They are not suitable for that. The stock is too thin, and as other reviewers point out, the quality of the printing is poor. It is hard to decipher the image. They are also lesser known HCA fairy tales.

The artworks on these cards are reproduced very well and look beautiful. The artwork side is glossy and lovely, however, the paper side is made of stock so very thin and flimsy, it bleeds quite heavily when one is using a fountain or dip pen to write on. I wouldn't send any of these to an international address, they may very well survive but would probably be foxed around the edges or even torn.

I was a little disappointed with the quality of these prints. Certainly we've come far enough in technological advances that we can buy reasonably quality copies of art instead of slightly out of focus copies. Still, a good way to introduce beautiful illustrations to small children. I would just have preferred prettier copies.

I am a member of a postcard exchange (PostCrossing.com), so I need to have lots of postcards on hand. Many of the addresses I receive specify that they do not collect "tourist" postcards, so I am always on the lookout for unusual/beautiful/unique cards to send - these fit the bill perfectly!
