An exhibition of New Year’s cards by classics of postal miniatures takes place in Odessa

In the central library of the city of Odessa takes place an exhibition of New Year’s cards "Winter Fairy" created by classics of postal miniatures

In the central library of the city of Odessa takes place an exhibition of Christmas cards "Winter Fairy", dedicated to the magical time of the year when dreams come true and the best wishes are heard everywhere.
The creators of these postcards were very fond of children, believed in good and wanted their cards to make the world better and happier.

More recently, it considered to be a good tradition to give each other postcards. A New Year's cards were not just a sign of respect, but also a particle of festive mood. People were buying them in advance to 30 pieces and sending by mail to different cities. Many people remember the times when New Year’s cards have been redrawn on the wall newspapers, and then stored in shoes boxes for many years. A small piece of festively decorated cardboard has been turned into a postcard, and brought the feeling of magical New Year's holiday.

Today the old postcards are both the samples of festive design of the late XIX - early XX century, and pleasant memories of childhood for many people. Postcards have become a part of the culture and a whole section of collectibles. Even today's born after the collapse of the Soviet empire young people buy the old postcards, which keep the magic of the New Year ...

The greeting cards - the works of Vladimir Zarubin are the most loved and respected ones. Among those who was born in the last century it is practically impossible to find a person who has never kept such New Year’s cards in hands (the circulations were up to 25 million)! Today collectors are willing to spread $ 200-300 for the rare items (issued in 90). These cards are in such demand that they (the case is unprecedented for the Soviet postcards) even being falsified!

The exhibition of New Year’s cards the "Winter Fairy", which shows the works by classics of post miniatures, takes place in Odessa central library.
Funny, naughty New Year’s cards shown at the exhibition, give good mood and feeling of special holiday. The Father Frosts, good old heroes of cartoons and favorite fairy tales get alive on these postcards.
