"The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers. Prussian Guard. Peter Rabbit."

United States: 1960s? A veritable "emoji incunable": three sets of whimsical shapes formed by typewriter keystrokes, including: The Parade of the "Wooden Soldiers", "Prussian Guard", and "Peter Rabbit." Note the clever use of quotation marks for rabbit ears and military hat plumes. A nice reminder that people have been making shapes and pictures using typographic letter forms since before the cell phone and computer. Blank card typewritten in red and black (4.25" by 7"), verso blank. Very good to near-fine. Toning, a couple short tears, letter fold.
