From The Past . . .










back in some old files again
these are some of the cards created by my
late New York City brother in law
Phelps K Manning
Poet, Playwright, Photographer,
Creator of The Birthday Book Horoscope Poster

he was also well known for his creative greeting cards
his Birthday Book company and store are no more
a bit of trivia, Jackie Kennedy was one of his clients
he left us sadly in nineteen eighty eight
our children adored him

~

happy we were recipients of his
cards, trips, travels, visits, gifts,
memories
LOVE

~

I remember seeing cards of that style--might have been his. Sorry you lost him too soon. He was obviously a talented guy!

What a talented man. How sad to have him leave this earth so soon. I love all these designs -- simple and fun -- but the one with the flavors really grabs me! Very clever!

How interesting. I recall seeing cards like these, and no doubt bought a few. They may have been his. Having Jackie Kennedy as a customer is a feather in the cap. :)
