Free Vintage Halloween Cards: Pretty Women

Maybe I’m wrong, but I think men were in charge of designing these vintage Halloween cards, because each features a pretty woman! Some of the cards have hand-lettered type treatments, too, and are extraordinary examples of commercial calligraphy. Several also share a theme that seems to have died out over the years. Apparently there was a legend that said if you saw a man’s face in a mirror on Halloween, he was your true love. That belief was a little hard to sustain in the cold light of day, so that probably explains why you never hear it any more.
