Taking Liberties!

Here’s a postcard I received over Official Postcrossing from Kentucky! Interestingly enough, it’s a card featuring a local sight! First off, this is a work that’s part of silhouettist Wilhelm Staehle’s collection (quite an interesting form of art). This features a very popular icon of American culture – the Liberty […]

Man the Brakes!

Check out this super cool double-view postcard from Finland! For the first time in a while, I had to photograph the pictures of this card since the scanner seems to just blend them together in a peculiar fashion. This is a view – no, TWO views – of Linnanmäki! This […]

Rikuo of the Nura Clan!

This bangin’ anime postcard reached me from Malaysia! This one’s from the manga/anime series “Nurarihyon no Mago”, or “Nurarihyon’s Grandon” (alias is “Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan”). This is a supernatural anime (and when I say “anime”, I mean “anime/manga”… it’s just easier to write one :P) featuring Rikuo […]

The Highest in the East!

Yay my aunt loves me! She sent me this lovely postcard from North Carolina! This is a shot of Mount Mitchell, the highest peak in the Appalachian Mountains! The Appalachians are a mountain range that go from Newfoundland, Canada all the way into Alabama (I honestly didn’t know the Appalachians […]

The Card With the Piranha!

My final postcard from the Texas anime quartet! This features a work by manga creator Masami Morio… and I’ve looked tirelessly (lie – I was very tired) for the manga name, but I couldn’t find it! You should see my search history (lie – you shouldn’t): “masami morio manga boat”; […]

The “Chosun” One!

I got this really beautiful map card from South Korea! I first and foremost admire this card for a certain highly commendable reason – it includes the entire Korean peninsula! As you can see, Korea has the alias of being “The Land of Morning Calm”, though the origins of that […]

Detroit, the Motor City!

Vintage travel poster cards are something to admire! This one came to me from Michigan! It features (or advertises, I suppose?) the city of Detroit, Michigan’s largest and most populous state (though not its capital). Detroit is located in the south eastern part of the state, on the “oven mitt” […]

Sir Crocodile!

I realize I have a lot of different “card parcels” i’m posting from (e.g. “this one’s card #2 from the anime card sender; “this one’s card #4 from the Canada card sender”; “here’s card #86 from the “Pictures of Potatoes” card sender”). But I can’t help it, people just love […]
