During the great era of postcard publishing (which dated from the 1890s until World War I) uncountable different designs for postcards were produced. Holidays were a favorite time to send postcards, and as Halloween was second only to Christmas as a sending occasion, an enormous number of cards were available. The imagery is varied, appealing, and dramatic. We present here some of our favorites from that time, and hope that we thus encourage a renewal of the happy custom of Halloween correspondence.

p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: Times; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; } Only when darkness comes does Halloween truly begin. Night is the time for mystery, for devilry, for fright. All manner of mysterious and sometimes frightening creatures emerge from the shadows, including the two featured in our Wicked Witches and Creepy Cats: A Halloween Postcard Book. Along with the pumpkin, the witch and her feline familiar are the most enduring symbols of All Hallows' Eve, and thus are richly represented in the many Halloween postcards that were printed in the picture postcard's Golden Age (1890 to World War 1.) Our selection of 30 witch and black cat images include the mildly frightening witch, the adorable child witch, the pretty lady witch, one rather odd witch driving a roadster and many very fine black cats.
