Tuck Series 117 - AT THE CARNIVAL Postcards


This colorful series from Tuck publishers features vivid images of Carnival characters dressed in fantastical outfits.  Each has a title at bottom right, and says At the Carnival at bottom left.


Beautiful women and classic clowns illustrate many of the postcards in this series.


Some of the clowns wear Pierrot-style costumes. 


Columbine wears a spectacular hat of red horns on Harlequin and Columbine above.


Music plays a role in some of the images.


The women wear low-cut gowns with a risque flair.


The Cake-Walk is the most sought-after image in the series.
