"The gorgeous tome of vintage postcards from 1902 - 1937 packed with a beautiful collection of classic erotica and 4 provocative short stories from acclaimed French authors." ~LePetiteBlog.com
"...the book has wisely been published as a fine and hand-holdable bit of prurient elegance. It is a look at a fantasy world populated by women who seek only to fascinate. Frozen by the camera, their allure immune to the passage of time, they symbolize their era, but they belong to eternity." ~CultureKiosque.com

The book itself is somewhat small in size, but that is not a problem, as in any case, postcards were not larger than the book itself to start with. It contains ninety eight pictures and a few short stories and the introduction. If you are like me, you bought the book for the vintage nude photography, and not for the ten or so pages printed with short stories about postcards. Nevertheless, I would say, all but the last story are rather interesting, and the introduction itself may shed some light on things you didn't know about French Postcards (at least it did for me).
All and all, it's worth every penny I paid for it!
