HELP! PFF #46


I need help with this one, since I think I saw this image somewhere, although I didn't copy it. Anyone remember seeing something like this in the late 60's? I had no web access and very little reading material, so if I saw it somewhere - possibly an album cover? Regardless. I made it mine, somehow. In South Vietnam. While staying awake. Enjoy. And let me know if you recognize the basics in this image. I'd surely give credit where credit is due.

Make certain you stop by The Best Hearts Are Crunchy for Postcard Friendship Friday hosted by Beth Niquette for more EYE CANDY that's been sent through the mail!

  2. Sure.
    It's a memento from the turbulent youth of Mother Teresa.
    Her lips were redder than the Red Square.
    Box 36.

  5. It's most definitely of the time period, but nothing I can think of was exactly like this. That must have been a nice surprise as it made its way to stateside or did you put it in an envelope? It's a wonderful period piece and now I'm trying to remember who the illustrator was who did this sort of line work. Well for one it would be Klaus Voormann who did the Revolver album, but not really.

  6. Hmmm I can't help you out. I don't know about this. I wish someone will give this postcard to me. My entry for Postcard Friendship Friday is up - My PPF Entry.

  7. She is wonderful and she reminds me a little of a woman in a stained glass coloring book that Dover published many, many years ago. Happy PFF!

  12. Looks like the old 60's rock music posters which I've always loved. Maybe it's a Jefferson Starship poster?

  13. I don't recognise the drawing at all but it does remind me of so many art nouveau advertising posters. Mucha style.

  14. How about something from the cover of a fashion magazine back then? Just another thought. Mademoiselle or Vanity Fair? Not sure of the fashion magazines back then.

  15. Okay, can you tell I'm obsessed? Check out this great web site which lists lots of artists for this style. http://www.oldhandbills.com/bill_graham_postcards.htm

    And by the way, the art is beautiful. She looks a bit like Stevie Nicks.

  17. There was a time period in Art, where all ads and such were done this way. It is called, "art nouveau" and when we were in the mail order business, we sold large, softcover, books filled with these kinds of drawings. Maybe you saw this in one of them?
