An email is nice and a letter is better, but for those whose epistolary habits begin and end with the postcard, an overlooked book from 2008 is for them.
Postcard, a book compiled by London-based visual communication studio FL@33, offers a who's who of contemporary postcard design. Heavy hitters like graphic designer Rick Myers show up, as well as lesser-known firms like Hole In My Pocket. After flipping through this book you'll want nothing more than to dash out and send a few postcards of your own; thankfully the book comes with 20 cartes postales featured inside. If only you could remember where you left those stamps.
