Index: Festival of Postcards

An online showcase of the best postcards in the blogosphere!Ed. Evelyn Yvonne Theriault

The Festival of Postcards was a collaborative effort by almost 100  family history bloggers and deltiologists who gathered together every few months to share postcards organized around a central theme. Due to lack of time, I’ve had to suspend the Festival temporarily but you can still visit the first 8 issues below.

Geo

the geography of our planet through images and cartography.

Light

de-light-ful postcards featuring night-time views – artificial and natural – as well as

cards with a twist on the theme

White

dozens of postcards depicting a wide range of subject matter such as: buildings, Christmas, food, landscapes, people, snow, ice and water.

Quadrupeds

bloggers hare their serious, humourous and sometimes even bizarre images of man’s best – and not so best – friends!

Water

water-related topics as: beaches, boats, bridges, lakes, oceans, oysters and water parks – as well as mermaids and the spot on the Nile River where Moses was purportedly found!

Signs

a great selection of postcards showing painted, wooden, metal and neon signs but others have worked with the idea of sign as symbol

Main Street

Historical and modern Main Streets from around the world

Wheels

the premiere issue  – bicycles, boats, cars and trains as well as water wheels and oil derricks, and spinning wheels and amusement park rides.
