About this product
- DescriptionThe postcard's heyday was at the beginning of the nineteenth century when it became an important means to record and share news. In addition to everyday images, there was a more clandestine trade in risque imagery. In Erotic Postcards of the Early Twentieth Century, author Nigel Sadler explores changes in social attitudes, fashions and techlogy through the medium of erotic postcards. The postcards demonstrate that early twentieth-century photographers appreciated and respected the female form, offering something more than just mere titillation. We see Lucien Walery's studies of women in body stockings in the 1920s, semi-nude dancers in motion in 1900, and images promoting Germany's 'plein air' movement in the 1920s and '30s. These fascinating postcards take us across Europe over the course of several decades, revealing variances in approach due to time and place. However, in all the images, the photographers have captured the beauty of the human form.
