Delightful Vintage Halloween Cards for the Spooky at Heart


Candy, jack-o-lanterns, ghost stories — there's a lot to love about Halloween! Add to that list another treat: charming vintage cards. You may not normally think of the holiday as one with its own stationery, but we have around 100 years worth of cards that prove otherwise. You'll find plenty of spooks, witches, and scariest of all, unseemly suitors in the treasure troves of the NYPL Digital Collection. Here are a few favorites.
