A German and American partnership to provide the opportunity to collect rare antique holycards from around Europe.
HolyCards.com, founded by Santa Barbara City College Marketing professor Julie Ann Brown, is inspired by a desire to share antique European holy cards.
"As a fan of holy cards since childhood, I hope this art will create a resurgence of faith. These images can be used by anyone, from the little entrepreneur to the Vatican."
With about 40,000 of the pocket-sized cards tucked beneath plastic covers and stacked in boxes in her garage, Ms. Brown has amassed one of the world's most extensive collections.
The Vatican even requested one of her holy cards of St. Cornelius for a celebration of his feast day a few years ago. Actress Sophia Loren used a number of the images for a series her Canadian production company was doing on the lives of the saints.
