While working on a design project for a local group here in Texas I ran across an interesting website with a really unusual collection of images of vintage postcards. Vintage postcards in general have always been an interest, but this collection is unusual because the cards are selected on an unusual basis. They’re all postcards which include the lyrics of classic cowboy songs.
The site is Voices West, and the collection of hundreds of vintage postcard images is really outstanding. The quality of the artwork is uneven and a lot of the songs are pretty awful. But in among the collection are some real artistic gems, especially if you like western themed art. Take a few minutes to check it out.
