    “Greetings from place of pilgrimage Maria Eck”

    Kloster Maria Eck is a Franciscan monastery in Siegsdorf, Bavaria.

    The pen script on the first card is Arabella, designed by Arno Drescher and issued by the Ludwig Wagner foundry in 1936. The second one uses the similar Skizze, drawn by Walter Höhnisch for Ludwig & Mayer in 1935. While Arabella has been digitized at least twice, Skizze is not available in digital form yet.

    Both cards were published by Foto-Kaesberg, Ruhpolding, probably sometime around 1980. From MTP’s ephemera collection.
