The Vintage Preservation Collection #7: Bad Postcards
There's a ton of postcard collections out there - do a search on Flickr, and you'll come up with tens of thousands. Your best bet among this embarassment of riches is Bad Postcards, a Tumblr blog. It had me absolutely gobsmacked.
First of all, they're not all kitchy tourist traps - many are quite impressive. "Bad" isn't necessarily the word I'd use to describe a lot of these.... however, for some, "bad" isn't nearly harsh enough. Take a look for yourself. The blog has only been up since April 2010, so I'm hoping to see it continue for many months to come.
