Is there some way to obtain these?

***do our German members have any ideas?? Have you seen these cards at local record stores? / Jarkko***

Hi

These postcards seem hard to find...
Today, it was the first time I stumbled onto a couple (2 of 7) of these postcards on eBay:

But like I said: this isn't the complete set (which contains 7 postcards). Anyone of our German members who has seen these around, e.g. as an extra when buying the album,...?

I re-scanned the postcards today in high resolution (400 dpi, each >2 MB jpg) and uploaded the scans to the same Gallery page with the 11 MB pdf file of the Darker poster. Here is the link: http://cohen.1g.fi/kuvat/You+Want+it+Da ... postcards/
The scans can be downloaded from the Gallery. Just click on one of the photo files to open it in full size and then download.

Hi

If anyone is interested, someone is selling a set of these postcards on eBay right now. Note that this is a set of only 6 cards instead of 7!
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Leonard-Cohen-P ... SwTglYlzMs
6 EUR + 4 EUR postage in Europe, I think.

Thanks for the tip! As it was at a reasonable price I bought a set. Together with 2 cards I already had my set is complete.

I bought a set from eBay too. However, I was not convinced they were the real thing. Firstly there are only 6 cards instead of 7 and secondly, the quality of the cutting is very poor (or maybe amateurish) with bits of other images around the edges of the cards. They didn't cost much and I'm not too bothered about it but I would be interested to hear what you thought Hugo.

I’ve checked my set. At first it had two cards together with the lyrics booklet, bought that also on Ebay. I’m pretty sure those are originals. When I compare these with the set of six that I bought recently there are no differences in size or quality. In my opinion the quality is very acceptable and there are no rough edges
That can either mean that they are all ok or that they are all copies, I choose to believe that they are ok. And, as you also mentioned, they came at a reasonable price so what is there to complain ;-)

If it helps, I added two photos’s, One form the backside of the postcards so you can see that they are all the same size and are neatly cut. The second picture is the only card where I can see a flaw in the photo. On the edge on the right side there are some white spots that don’t seem to belong there. Can anyone comment if these 'spots" are on all the sets that were distributed?

And further more:

I'am still looking for postcard number 4 ( see opening post in this topic) and have postcard numbers 2 and 4 to "trade".

Hi Wendy and Hugo

I also bought a set of 6 on eBay although I already had a full set of 7 of which I am 100% sure that it is genuine. Wendy is right about the poor cutting on the eBay set, but I'm 99.9% sure these postcards are also genuine. Perhaps they didn't meet up to the standard for regular distribution and somebody is now selling these instead of throwing them in the bin...
