Vanity Fair

I received this card as a birthday surprise from Lannie! (: 

This card is from a collection on vintage Vanity Fair covers, here you have some info:
From modernist wonders to striking Jazz Age delights-a box of 100 postcards, each featuring a different and beautiful vintage cover from Vanity Fair magazine.
In 1913, publisher Condé Nast founded Vanity Fair, a magazine that would celebrate the culture, politics, lifestyles, and humor of the world's "smart set." The magazine discovered or lent invaluable support to such varied names as Dorothy Parker, e. e. cummings, Noël Coward, Gertrude Stein, P. G. Wodehouse, Cecil Beaton, Edward Steichen, and Man Ray, and frequently reproduced works by the likes of Matisse and Picasso long before anyone in the mainstream press would dare. Edited by Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, this elegant collection of postcards includes one hundred of these groundbreaking covers, representing more than twenty years of cosmopolitan Jazz Age design in one box.

This particular one is from March 1931 and designed by Fortunato Depero 

Salamat Lannie!
