Concept card makes 1100

A couple of milestones reached in today's post. The above card makes the last concept card I've been searching for. I now have all 23 concept cards. For those of you who didn't know, the first series of postcards produced for Disneyland all used artwork from the development process rather than actual photographs.

The above card also makes the 1,100 postcard in my collection.

whew.

Very cool! I don't have anywhere NEAR all the Disneyland pre-opening artwork cards (though I have all the WDW ones of course). I'm glad George put a link to your post in his update it helped me find this.

This is such a gorgeous postcard! I wonder if I can make a link to this post in the next issue of A Festival of Postcards which is dedicated to SIGNS - I'm sure Festival readers would be interested in both the images and information on your blog.
If you want to see what the Festival looks like you can see the last one here:

if you're interested just drop me a line and I'll take care of the registration for you.

We've just published the Festival which features your postcard here:

I don't seem to be able to find the definition for a "concept card". If you have a moment I'd like to add it to the text that accompanies your card.
Thanks again for permitting us to link to you.

The first 23 postcards featured at Disneyland didn't feature photographs but rather used artist conceptual art work. This series of cards has become known as the concept set.

1,100 Disney cards! Amazing. And very possibly more by now, I suppose.
