A letter-writing blog extolling the virtues of snail mail:
old-fashioned postal paper mail and all of its varied accessories.
I love your collection of mod postcards! Before reading this post, I had no idea that postcards came in book form. I had often wondered where people find such eclectic postcards. All I tend to see for sale are touristy cards. Another Postcrossing blogger, postcardsandroadtrips, collects Kaj Stenvall postcards which I find quite amusing and artistic. Anyway, thanks for sharing your fun mail art!
Maybe you've mentioned this before, but Chronicle Books postcards are fountain-pen and liquid-media friendly (unlike, for example, Pomegranate postcards, which come on aggressively nasty coated stock).
Joseph, good point - but not ALL the Chronicle Books postcards are fountain-pen friendly. These, unfortunately, are not. The backs are very cutely decorated as well, but because they background is color, the ink pools and does not soak into the paper. I stick to sharpies and gel pens for the Shag postcard backs.
Another cherished illusion demolished! I've ordered a Shag book anyway--I have some iron gall inks and other artsy tricks up my sleeve...
