Almost as profuse as the number of different cars that Ferrari has produced over the last fifty years, has been the paper output from the Factory.
Apart from sales brochures, press packets, technical manuals, and owners handbooks, which are standard fare for any car manufacturer, Ferrari has also produced a plethora of other paper matter as well.
Amongst these, and one of the longest running items, going back to the very start of the company, has been an almost annual output of postcards.

It's no secret that production of Ferraris has always been on the light side. Small production runs are part and parcel of Ferrari's manufacturing philosophy, and in the early days some of those production runs were exceedingly small.
Take the Ferrari 342 America series built between October of 1952 and January of 1953, for example. How does six cars sound? Production runs don't get much smaller.
