Everyone loves receiving a postcard in the mail, and it’s not hard to understand why. Here, in a day and age when most people communicate via email, text, or Facebook message, a postcard is truly special. It’s something tangible that the sender went out of their way to send to you, and you alone, as a way of including you in their travels.
However, things weren’t always that way. In the early 1900s, postcards were a far more common way to communicate. In many cases, they’re also our only lasting images of certain structures, monuments, and places. Arcadia Publishing’s Postcard History Series
seeks to honor the lost art of the postcard with a stunning collection of volumes on the topic.
