This card, printed in France in 1981, honors the Oct. 1,1979, front cover of The New Yorker designed by R.O. Blechman. This is not a postcard per se but it is modern postcard size, about 5.75 by 4-1/8 inches. So you could easily and legally use it, mail it as a postcard! Your copy might have a teeny hint of wear at a corner tip or an errant white speck inherent to the printing, but overall, near mint condition. No surface wear. I have several of these available. I've included a direct scan as well as photos taken under different light (lamp light and natural daylight at a window). Lovely accents in a rainbow of colors adorn the New York skyscrapers and buildings against a matte gray background. The magazine title is in light black lettering. The gray background seems to change colors and I made several vain attempts to get just the right tones. Everyone's computer monitor is calibrated differently, but the best I know to describe it is to say it's a flat gray with blue-green undertones.
"R.O. Blechman (born in 1930 in New York City), is an American animator, illustrator, children's-book author, graphic novelist and editorial cartoonist whose work has been the subject of retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art and other institutions. He was inducted into the Art Directors Hall of Fame in 1999.
Blechman's best-known works include the book The Juggler of Our Lady (1953), television commercials for Alka-Seltzer (1967) and other products, the animated PBS special Great Performances: The Soldier's Tale; a minute-long CBS Christmas greeting (1966); and numerous covers for The New Yorker magazine."
