Well it's nice to be back and blogging after my mini break; I've been doing lots of 'behind the scenes' tidying and started to make a few changes to the blog. There's still lots on the 'to do' list but I thought it was about time we got back to the real business of blogging.
Today's post is a collection of beautiful greetings cards from The White Cabinet that are created from the designs of top fashion illustrator Hilda Glasgow. They're simple, elegant and in a world that loves all things Mad Men - bang on trend.
Hilda Glasgow was one of the top illustrators in the fashion industry between the 1940's and 1960's. Hilda graduated from the Pratt Institute in New York in 1933 and her work went on to appear in magazines including Vogue and Department stores such as the famous Saks Fifth Avenue.
After being hidden away for 50 years Hilda's work is now being shown and used in a range of collectible cards and gifts. The collection is curated by Hilda's daughter Liz, who as a commercial photographer is able to use her creative skills to make the most of the beautiful designs.
Each of the greetings cards are custom printed on acid free Museo fine art board and measure 5.5" x 7 3/8". Printed as blank cards they are suitable for a variety of occasions whether it be the birthday of a fashionista, a thank you for friends and family or a collectible piece of art.
The collection features fashion designs from the 40's to the 70's so you're sure to find an outfit that you adore. For today's post I picked out my personal favourites. Liz has kindly added the name and date to each of the images (looks like I belong in fifties); on the real cards this information is printed on the back of the card. Available to purchase online the notecards range retails at $5 for a single card of $36 for a pack of eight (prices in American Dollars).
