Format: Hardcover
Hi.. My husband and I saw these (they also have a pretty version that is a tall format) in a museum gift shop and we were immediately attracted to the beautiful covers. He offered to buy me one, then he realized that from what he could see the postcards would rub against each other, (when the album pages were closed) as the cards face each other in the album. Those of you that have bought it haven't mentioned that and while that may not matter for modern postcards it surely would not be good for vintage ones that were delicate or glittered, etc.

This product, while it charmingly recreates an art nouveau album, is not for any serious collector. It does not appreciably protect the postcard by any means and mounting cards is difficult in the slits cut into the album pages which do not fit all smaller sizes of postcards well and are troublesome when trying to mount cards on both sides of the page. If you fill the album, it will not lay flat but fans out and is not particularly attractive.
This may be fun to show a few cards of recent sentimental value or a recent trip, but don't use it if you care for the long term condition and integrity of your postcards, particularly older ones.

I'm buying my second copy of this book. I've filled the first with postcards from museum visits. I keep it on my coffee table. Guests like to look through it, and so do I! It brings back memories of wonderful museum visits. There is enough space to make a brief notation next to each postcard. I note the date and museum visited. I'm so glad I could locate a source to buy another on of these albums.

I looked high and low before finding one of these. I'd about given up and then found this one from Amazon and what a find. It's been most helpful in organizing and viewing the post cards I've collected over the years!

This book truly is beautiful. The paper is thick with a lovely pattern. The cover is nicely embossed and it is very well constructed.

This is a very nice little book for the casual postcard collector. It is not very large so watch out if you have over sized postcards. The postcards are held in the book by being inserted into pre-cut corner tabs so there is a danger of slight damage if you are not careful. That said the pre-cut corners also make it hard to fit in larger postcards. However this is not the product for someone who is looking to archive rare postcards or use for a serious collection. But it works great for my "places I have traveled" postcard collection!

I just finished filling an album and will be purchasing a second. I have been searching for years for an album to hold the post cards I've received and purchased as souvenirs for over three decades. I love the Art Deco design, the pages are made with heavy stock paper that will hold up to what I suspect will be lots of page turning as I review the album over and over. A wonderful, inexpensive, welcome gift for anyone who likes to preserve memories.

This wasn't QUITE what I was looking for. I wanted more of a photo album style postcard book so that I could see both sides of the postcard. This one has slits in the card paper pages for you to insert the corners of the postcard and hold it in place. They stay in place just fine and it serves its purpose. My fault for not paying closer attention to the product description,
