Synopsis

This collection of postcards provides a window into a world now lost forever: Paris in its golden age. Leonard Pitt's selection offers a stimulating view of an era in which both Paris and the `carte postale' were in vogue. Pitt's choice of medium introduces the reader to a rich and alive social world, in which, during the early years of the twentieth century, over one million postcards were produced and exchanged a day.



Exchanges range from the passing romances of Parisian street-vendors through to the lovesick expat writing to his sweetheart back home: revel and be transported by this exciting mix of landmark and anecdote, the glorious and elegant commingling with the quaint and nostalgic.

Leonard Pitt is an author and actor based in the San Francisco area. He has previously written several books on Paris, including WALKS THROUGH LOST PARIS and A SMALL MOMENT OF GREAT ILLUMINATION. Pitt is also the co-director of San Francisco's The Flying Actor Studio, specialising in physical theater.
