I bought this one on a camping trip across Scandinavia many years ago, and I don't think I had any idea what the "polka" was until much more recently!
I really don't remember when I bought this one, but I'm guessing I was a teenager? It says: M.C. Escher Book of 30 Postcards–Magna Books....I don't think I even knew who M.C. Escher was when I bought these! See more of his work here!
Interactive Wallpaper — When I was in graduate school at CSM one of my tutors was the immensely talented Rachel Kelly. This is one of her postcards from her work at the time, she has such a lovely hand! I've always loved this piece....you can see some of her current work at the link above or check out her blog at Interactive Wallpaper too.
One of our favorite places to take the girls when we visit Colorado is Tiny Town. It's exactly that: a tiny replica of an old times town. There is a little train you can ride, too. The back of the post cards reads as above and you can see more at Tiny Town Railroad
This beauty is sent from one of my most talented London friends...she always sends the BEST cards. Polona is a curator and all around amazing talent, and you will certainly see lots more of the goodness she sends over the coming Fridays.
Well, I'm no longer posting a playing card every week, and I never quite kept up with #the100dayproject (good start though!), so I thought I'd try a new series on the blog every Friday. I have been collecting postcards since my teens, on travels, locally, sent by friends and family who know my tastes, and I keep them all in boxes in my studio. I would love to share them with you so I'm going to post my favorites regularly throughout the summer and into the fall....I have enough to keep me going for years I imagine, but let's see how it goes, okay? Here's one of my all times favorites from a trip to Italy, probably in the late 90s?
The back says, "Simpaty Cards, Grafiche Milan Cards" with a phone number....I'm willing to share if you'll call and let me know what they say!! See a new one next Friday!
