Description
Opening in the reign of Kaiser Wilhelm II and continuing to the eve of the second Gulf War, this album tells the story of the 20th century through 51 postcard images of some of its most recognizable leaders and political figures. Here are iconic portraits like Winston Churchill flashing his V for victory, Ho Chi Minh with his scraggly beard, and Che Guevara with his cigar, while Adolf Hitler and Franklin Roosevelt each pose affably with children. Since his youth during World War II, John Fraser has been a passionate collector of postcards with political subjects. This compact album is not in itself a postcard book; rather, it presents photographic reproductions of cards from Fraser's extensive collection at Oxford's Bodleian Library. Each card is given a full-page color plate, while the facing page offers a thumbnail view of the reverse and a substantive caption on the figures or events depicted.
