This thread will be for lovers of Line Art drawings on postcards: clean, simple, elegant ... or not-so-clean, or not-so-simple, or not-so-elegant, as the wind blows.

Cheers,

First blood will be the Ambassador Bridge, which runs between Windsor, Ontario, Canada and Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Suspension bridges are often such graceful structures; about the only thing that can improve them is a nice, clean, simple, elegant line art drawing.

Cheers,

That's really "swell" to quote your postcard! That is a really neat design on the front and the bridge makes a great subject for line art in my opinion. Thanks for showing it!

Here's a lovely drawing (less line, more art) of the village Turckheim in 'Our Alsace', France.

You can almost hear the chickens clucking.

Current events: note the "(Hachette, edit)" in the lower right-hand corner.

Dr Joseph Guttman (of the Steelograph Guttmans) did a lovely job on this (probably) engraving of the Sheraton-Cadillac Hotel in Detroit.

Y'all may notice a faint similarity to the Boon-Cadillac hotel that Bujustu posted at:

ILS: its gonna be tough to top the Ambassador Bridge ...

Delaney's Steak House (long gone).

The drawing on this postcard seems good enough to have come from The New Yorker.

http://www.tipsontables.com/delaneys.html ... 1942 restaurant review reprinted at Tips on Tables, with postcards!

Cheers,

A line art card of the Hotel Majestic in Utica NY.

The foxing only adds authenticity, right?

Cheers,

Line Art postcards of Old Quebec:

1) 'Petite Rue Champlain' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petit_Champlain

2) 'Porte Kent Gate' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rampar..._Quebec_City

Sadly, these line art drawings were printed on the coarsest, weakest paper; I guess I'm going to have to break down & buy some of those super-stiff hard-plastic postcard sleeves.

I'd love to know more about the publisher, y'all.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

Nicely-textured line art drawing of a windmill.

I know that I will be keeping an eye out for other good work from this artist.

Cheers,

I could not get anywhere - or, because it is a common phrase, I got to too many anywheres - on the 'ALBERGO TRATTORIA' on the building.

Q/ Could this be a reproduction of an old woodcut, rather than a drawing?

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

Searching the address, rather than the name, rapidly yielded this.

Well done, cjpalermo1964!

The Hotel Restaurant Herberg de Boer'nkinkel is still going strong in beautiful, downtown Hoenderloo NL.

"Welcome to the Tavern Boer'nkinkel. Our family hotel with 6 rooms is located diagonally across from the entrance to the National Park De Hoge Veluwe. The area offers many hiking and cycling opportunities. All rooms are equipped with TV, telephone and wireless internet connection. Our restaurant is very atmospheric and is known for its excellent cuisine."

That the drawing includes the 'Heineken' sign is a nice touch.

The excellent http://www.ArtistsSignatures.com/ offered five (5) 'Willem K', but not one of them was mine

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

Here's a fun line art postcard -- only the art is on the back of the card. A bicycle carrier delivery and on New Year's Day to boot!

Looks like a fun version of When Will You Write, of which I have enough cards to call it a Collecting Category.

Q/ Dealers' marks pretty much never make sense to me; do you know what 'R5' might be?

Cheers,
