Details

This modern greeting card shows us an image of a man flying to the moon! It is a reproduction based on a vintage book illustration by artist Milo Winter, for the Windermere Series of Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales. It's an image from a lesser-known story titled "Fortune's Overshoes", about a humble watchman who stumbles across a pair of enchanted Faerie shoes that took the wearer anywhere he wanted, and the watchman wound up on the moon! Just goes to show you not to put yourself under a fairy spell, who knows where you'll end up.

If you'd like to see this listed as a print, fridge magnet, bookplate, or fabric block, just let me know and I'll set it up for you.

Our cards are all 5" x 7" inches, (unfolded they measure 7" x 10") printed on heavy weight cardstock, blank inside. Each card comes with an envelope. The image will have a colored border applied, with the image centered in the card and a white border around it, as shown in the samples picture above. Please note that vintage image sizes vary, and are not optimized for modern frames (in case you are buying the card with an eye to framing it.)

We make our cards from vintage images from our personal collection (we've been collecting ephemera for over 40 years.) We scan the originals, and then clean and repair the damage that time has done to the original using Photoshop. We then print them using a high resolution printer at 600 DPI. The resulting card is deeply saturated, and guaranteed to please.

Note any watermark showing is on the scan only, not the item itself. All images and design elements are protected by copyright. Copyright is not transferable with the sale of this product. The buyer is not entitled to reproduction rights.

I'm very happy with the quality and craftsmanship of this greeting card! I ordered several different pin up girl cards, some from other online stores and these look cleaner and more professional than others I have bought. I look forward to ordering more, especially if the selection grows. Also, shipping was very fast!
