Complete Set Of 12 Mucha Postcards, Months Of The Year, Written In French 1901
Complete set of Muchas 12 Months of the year with months written in French. Each postcard signed by the artist Mucha. When these postcards are found used, they are generally used around 1904 and 1905. These specific postcards were probably one of the very first sets to be available as they were all used in early 1901 , (less than a year after their inception on the cover of Le Mois). Became a favorite amongst the public and because of their extreme popularity, many reproductions were made.

This is a type of collection you find maybe once every generation. Apart from been one of the most treasured sets to a deltiologist, this one comes with a personal story, a story that has kept this set together since 1901 and should be kept together for many more centuries. We went to great lengths analyzing the script writings on each card, line by line. They were written in French from the same person and every one of the cards were sent to the same woman Armandine Blanc.

This gentlemen we believe was a student of Mucha as he referenced him as Teacher Mucha. The woman we believe was someone he wanted to be with and possibly becoming his girlfriend. Starting in January of 1901 and ending in March of 1901, cards were sent weekly from Nogent (a small town outside of Paris) to her address: 83, Rue St. If you use google maps, that building with that address still stands today.

The last card sent was the month of November. Below are the writings in French and the translation in English from each postcard. Google translate wasn't much help as this was written in old style French and made the translation into English mostly gibberish. We at "Marcis Halloween" speak many languages and we went word for word, sentence for sentence in translating the meaning of the writings as intended to be understood in their native French writing.

A collection that really belongs in a Museum or an Art Institution that preserves such treasures. Ju me fais un plaisir de vous adressez la premiere carte de la serie que je vous ai annoncee. Cest un genre tre special , ce sont des etude tres facilles bien que dun symbolisme un peu subtil. Je pense quelles ne depareron pas votre collection.

With a high quality scanner, you can clearly see these embossed details.
