Pozdrav iz Banjaluke!




            The first series of postcards of Banjaluka are of a composite form with decorative ornaments in the line with the dominant Sezession at that time. They are popularly called litografije, medaljonke or gruserice. The motifs on the first postcards are drawn according to the photographs and printed by lithographic or chromolithographic technique. In this technique, the background is a polished stone plate made from lime slate, of fine porousness, 6–15 cm thick, on which the motifs of the postcard are drawn.
