Sunset Press Vintage Signal Cards c. 1940s, Complete Deck

Regular price $42.00

This is the third set of these Signal Cards I've had, and I'll continue to snatch them up when I see them as I think they are just gorgeous, and also packed with lots of information! The color is bright and saturated and the stock is matte, not glossy, making them to my eye just perfect. Plus, how to beat the fantastic graphics of these signal flags, and the language explaining their meanings, such as "My vessel is healthy, and I require free pratique," or "I am carrying mails." These were made to be used as reference, I believe in WWII, and their backsides provide translation and other practical (and also poetic) information. Plus several instructional cards explaining more about the usage of all. Really great and surely fodder for all sorts of creative applications. 

Complete deck. First three photos show all cards. Cards are in good condition, with light wear and a few light center folds, very minor. Box is in very rough shape and not much use for storing them (making me happy to know they were well used) but why stash them away anyway? Cards measure approx 3 1/2" x 2 3/8".
