Book Review: Long May She Wave

Bending the book review rules, Long May She Wave is actually a very large collection of collectible postcards focusing on American Flag themes. These postcards come in a very nice box and include duplicates of all 50 designs. The designs are centered around a very large collection of American art curated by Kit Hinrichs.

The appeal of this collection is not the overly jingoistic vibe that this set gives off on the surface. What is most fascinating about these cards is the vast and comprehensive display of folk art and Americana. Everything from quilts to paintings to photos of old toys are included. Antique collectors and lovers of all things vintage will want to take a look.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
