Tales of Wonder: Retelling Fairy Tales through Picture Postcards - Jack Zipes

This is an overview of various postcards depicting various fairy tales. Most of the postcards are drawn from his private collection. In edition to a brief overview of the history of the postcard as well as the history of fairy tale art on postcards, Zipes includes various tales, including a possible source for Rip Van Winkle. There are also brief biographies about some of the artists.

It is a beautiful book. It is great fun to look at how the various postcards depicted various characters. Though it was a bit stranger that the Andersen section didn't include postcards from Denmark.
