AT FIRST, I SIMPLY COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EYES.

I HAVE BEEN COLLECTING J.C. LEYENDECKER FOR YEARS, HAVE ALL OF THE BOOKS, BUT HAD NEVER SEEN A REFERENCE TO CARTOON POSTCARDS.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, ONE SURFACES, THEN ANOTHER THREE. THEY WERE ISSUED IN 1910 BY F. A. MOSS, DENVER, COLORADO. 3.5” x 5.5”. NOTICE THEY ARE ALL MARKED WITH LEYENDECKER'S TRADE LOGO.

1. 6770: FORBIDDEN FRUIT, POSTMARKED 1911

2. 6772. MAN'S INHUMANITY TO MAN, POSTMARKED 1911

3. 6775. T'IS AN ILL WIND

4. 6779. AFTER MAN CAME WOMAN

I CANNOT HELP BUT REMARK THAT ALL OF THE CARDS, EXHIBIT A TENSION BETWEEN THE IMAGE AND ITS CONTENT. CARICATURES OF CHILDREN ARE USED TO HIGHLIGHT TWO KINDS OF VIOLENCE PREVALENT IN THE CULTURE: PHYSICAL AND SEXUAL. I WONDER WHAT THE FULL SET WILL LOOK LIKE.

    It's in the eyes. Something spooky there.

    I believe it's called "the gaze", which males use for a kind of sexual violence.

    By the way, folks. NO REFERENCE IN ANY OF THE STANDARD LEYENDECKER "BIBLES". Noe I am obsessed with finding out where Charles Beach is buried. This is the man who gave his face to this country as the best example of ideal masculinity, the Arrow man. And he was gay, with a very gay ending: the common grave.
