The images here are from an extensive collection of vintage postcards I began making in the 1980s. The cards come from around the world, though most are either American or European in origin. One will notice certain recurring obses- sions: the First World War; late 19th and early 20th-century theatrical and musical performers; animals; romantic French cards of the 1920s and 1930s; comic cards; cards on which the sender has written on what we think of as the ‘front’ side of the card; exotica and esoterica of various kinds.
