New CD: Lunagirl Vintage Nudes

Lunagirl is pleased to offer 360 classic, tasteful vintage nude photo French postcards on CD, restored and ready to browse and print for projects.  Brand new today ~  See it here!

Many artists and crafters appreciate these beautiful antique risque images and our customers have requested a collection to use in their card making, altered art work, and other projects.

You'll find a lovely collection of vintage women, most from the Edwardian era or the 1920s Flapper era, some from the earlier Victorian styles.  The poses range from serene to sassy!  Ladies with veils, big hats, corsets, petticoats, jewelry, costumes. Some post cards have two versions, in different color tints.

Why are they called French postcards?  Many early postcards originated in France, including photographs of actresses, children, romantic ladies, and other themes, in addition to the "naughty" ladies (who were very popular with WWI soldiers!).  But the term "French postcard" eventually became associated with risqué images (most early 20th century risqué postcards originated in Paris).  These images are rather tame by today's standards but were considered quite naughty and even scandalous in their day!
