Postals from Western Wonderlands: Grand Canyon Postcards and Postcard Messages” is the first ebook in a series of western national parks and monuments we intend to produce. The Grand Canyon postcards in this ebook date circa 1900-1985. Early postcards from the turn of the century were also referred to as “postals.” We go into more detail about the history and dating of postcards in articles posted on our website: iVintageImages.

This ebook is illustrated with postcard images, usually found on the front side, and hand-written messages, usually found on the back side. There are exceptions to this format that are explained in author’s notes. The titles and messages are transcribed verbatim. Postcards that have been postally used are dated by the postmarks. Postcards that are not postmarked, or have dates written on, are dated by copyright or circa. Circa is an approximate date plus or minus 5 years.

The theme of the series will be western national parks and monuments postcards and postcard messages. Our first national park postcard book is titled “Postals from Wonderland: Yellowstone Postcard Messages.” This printed book has 12 chapters with 925 postcard messages dating 1900-1985.

You are welcome to check with us on our publishing schedule. This will depend on the time we have to devote to the next ebook. This has been a long term project we began years ago when we started collecting national park postcards. We evolved from collectors to dealers to hosting a National Park Postcard and Paper Show from 1993-1998. We were members of the International Federation of Postcard Dealers, IFPD, for many years and conducted business with collectors and dealers throughout the world. Our emphasis was on national park postcards, specializing in Yellowstone National Park.
