POSTER FOR THE ‘WAVERLEY CYCLES’ (1898)

BY ALFONS MUCHA

(Traveled from February 6 to February 26)

Although this postcard came from my pen pal in Luxembourg, Alfons Mucha (1860-1939) is a renowned Czech Nouveau artist. Mucha leapt to fame thanks to his theatre posters of Gismonda (1894). His works are reproduced as postcards in Czech Republic due to their large demand and as a result Mucha is quite a famous name in the Postcrossing community. People would make swap requests for a Mucha postcard.  In fact, one copy of this exact same postcard can be bought on e-bay for  $3.59! So I guess you can all me a lucky gal. 😉
