Information about Collecting Kitsch - Postcards

The first picture postcards were published about 120 - 130 years ago. Soon the first art postcard were issued. Since the transition from art fo "kitsch" is flowing soon the first postcards with kitsch motives appeared. Especially during the time shortly before World War I the most kitsch cards were printed.
They are not only historically interesting, since they reflect the spirit of their time and their people, but also they are often showing nice and interesting motives.

They have for collectors the advantage that in fact that most of these postcards from the time of 1895 - 1920 could still be acquired inexpensive. Often they are already available for 0.50 - 2.00 $ the piece. So I would like to give you a first view of these nice postcards ...

:-) Much fun thereby
