What is TuckDB Ephemera?

TuckDB Ephemera is a free database of antique ephemera. Every item in this database was published by the now defunct Raphael Tuck & Sons.

Raphael Tuck & Sons was the worlds largest postcard publisher, but they also published a large variety of other ephemera such as puzzles, books, greeting cards, and more.

During the London Blitz of the Second World War the company headquarters was destroyed including greeting cards, records and originals images. TuckDB is an attempt to recreate those lost records.

TuckDB is non-profit and does not sell ephemera.

Tuck Postcards

Raphael Tuck & Sons also published postcards. Please visit our sister site TuckDB Postcards to browse the postcard collection.

Also we have created a third site TuckDB Catalogs, containing the original Tuck sales catalogues. These catalogues list everything that Raphael Tuck & Sons sold.
