Description

Diego Rivera was commissioned by the Detroit Institute of Arts, with funds from Edsel Ford (the son of automaker Henry Ford), to paint the walls of the institute's garden court. Rivera studied workers at the Ford plant in nearby Dearborn to produce the murals, twenty-seven panels that Rivera completed in eleven months, April 1932-March 1933. The massive work is considered the finest example of the Mexican muralist's work in the United States, and Rivera thought the Detroit murals to be his most successful work.

This postcard book contains details from the murals, titled Detroit Industry, at the Detroit Institute of Arts. 

Contains thirty top-quality reproductions bound together in a handy, artful collection.

Easy to remove and produced on heavy card stock, these stunning postcards are a delight to the sender and receiver. Note: postcards are oversized and may require additional postage.

Postcard Dimensions: 4 3/4 x 6 7/8 inches

    Great cards, but not for fountain pens

    The back of the cards are glossy (like the artworks on the front). This means they don’t want to take ink from a fountain pen. It also means that you need to use a ball point pen, which would create indentations on the artwork/image on the other side. The quality of these postcards is too high, they’re durable at the expense of usability.!

    But I don’t regret my purchase. I’ll just use a different pen.
