You see them sold in tourist traps as souvenirs. Your grandmother probably collected some. You remember your father or uncle sending a couple during their vacation trips. Even though postcards are no longer popular today, they enjoyed a golden time not so long ago.
Believe it or not, the first postcards were not in color, or even had pictures on them. The very first postcard was believed to have come from writer Theodore Hook. It was a hand-drawn design on card, which he sent to himself in 1840. Colored, glossy postcards would not appear until 1939, thanks to Photochrom technology.
Although most people no longer send or receive postcards, they make for a great compilation for history or art lovers. Enjoy the good old times along with these beautiful postcard fonts.
