The cards I send…

20 11 2009

As soon as I’d signed up to the Postcrossing website, I started to wonder what cards I should send to people. Most people seem to have something against cutesy cards which is kind of a shame. Cutesy’s cute! But the people want what the people want. So I went looking on Amazon and Play.com, and there’s not many postcard books on sale but one caught my eye instantly: The Earth From The Air Postcard Book. When it arrived I couldn’t believe how beautiful the photos are, plus they are lovely and big and really good quality! It’s been hard sending them off but it makes me happy to think of someone getting one through the post. What a generous soul I can be at times! I would be very very happy if I got an Earth From The Air postcard and – in my opinion – that’s the true spirit of Postcrossing. The above pic isn’t in the postcard collection; it’s a stunning image that really caught my eye when I visited their website. ‘Rugs drying in Marrakech’ is the formal description, I believe. You can buy all kinds of amazing stuff there. I think I’ll get my mum one of their diary for Christmas! In fact the whole family will if I have anything to do with it. Quite pricey but well worth it.

This one of dyed cotton drying in the sun in India is also very beautiful:


This is the book in question:

It can be bought here.

Alternatively – not that I’m turning this into a price comparison website –  I’ve always preferred Play.com. They sell it here.

PS: The first three cards I sent were horrific Klimt monstrosities – sorry!

Hey there, Jenny!

I really like your blog!

I’m new to postcrossing, but I love it and I’ve become a bit of an addict already. I was checking Amazon for some postcard books and your blog actually helped me make my choice. I got the “Earth from the Air”, book. And, since I read that you’re such a big fan and wouldn’t mind receiving one, I’d like to send you one. Write to me on my postcrossing account (laviniaandrei – Denmark), let me know which one you’d like and you’ll get it as soon as I receive the delivery! Oh, and of course, don’t forget about the address!

Happy postcrossing,
Lavinia
