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,

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. :)
