Collecting postcards has been part of my practice for many years. Many of my postcards are dated between 1904 and 1914, the time period when "postcard collecting caught the national eye." I am a postcard collector, a delitologist, who really enjoys the feel and look of antique and vintage ephemera. Over the past few years, I have added to my Victorian and vintage postcard collection with poetry postcards.
Last week, after posting that I received more poetry postcards, some new ones were delivered by my friendly postman. The three that arrived were sent by Poetry Friday friends.
Diane Mayr created a Year of the Rat poetry postcard for both the calendar and lunar New Year's celebrations.
Molly Hogan offered this beautiful photograph and inspirational poem.
Christie Wyman mailed this wonderful poem on waiting for the falling snow to come.
I wish to extend my thanks to all my poetry friends who sent me their original poetry postcards. Each was unique and beautifully rendered. I showcased all of them with my winter decorations in my foyer and living room. For those who did not receive my New Year poem on a digitized photograph postcard, I would like to share it.
Oh my, I found a typo too late!
