Cool little known reference books on vintage postcards

Since we Canadians are coming up to an election I thought I’d share something patriotic. Unless you are a postcard collector you probably won’t come across these books. They’re produced by Michael J. Smith, who has been collecting vintage Canadian postcards for a loooong time. Although written for collectors and focusing mainly on cataloguing, the book I just bought has 900 colour reproductions of cards from 1903-1920 or so. (Image here is from vintagepostcards.org)

You can also read an essay here by Michael on vintage postcard collecting.
