Well, it’s kind of 3-D. But it’s more a bit of 2-D fakery. There are two planes in this lenticular post card (parallax panoramagram, a word that’s as delightful as “bananarama”), the front one with the pine needles, the perplexed-looking skiiers, and the two riding the lift. The second layer is the background. Moving the card gives a feeling of 3-D, if you’re a kid and have never seen 3-D before…
Anyway, it was published by the Manhattan Post Card Company, in business from 1928 to 1974. The Xograph process was patented in 1964 (the patent expired in 2008). It’s 6.5 x 4.75″.
A friend of mine found four of the these 3-D Collector Series cards at a garage sale. On the market today, they’re worth about $2.00 each.
Winking Jesus! LOL!
