Alternate Cover Edition for 9781519326805 This fully colour-illustrated non-fiction book describes my close relationship with old postcards. I have collected them since the 1970s and now own over two thousand of these charming, beautiful, quirky, historical items. I started fanatically collecting them whilst writing my thesis on Fantasy in Postcards at art college, where I was studying for a graphic design degree. My thesis won me a first with distinction, whereas my graphic art annoyingly gained me only a 2:2. All the cards in this fully colour-illustrated book are from my own large collection. A perfect present from the past.
