Postcardia-cum-Poetica #55

I adored the image on this card but the sheer amount of words in its original form had it tucked away at the back of the pile, so I’m ecstatic to have been able to rework it in a way that honours the simplicity of the image (and I am always awed at the simpatico pull of word fragments to compliment the picture).

Card is a promo for a local Buddhist talk and words, as they have been most recently, from Women Who Run With The Wolves. 

Postcardia-cum-Poetica #54

I’ve got quite a collection of card which already have words on them. Words that aren’t always easily covered up (like #52 ) so today’s card was an experiment in creating space for words while mainting the integrity of the original image. It’s given me the confidence to convert a few more of the wordy cards, and thus, further extending the life span of my postcard pile.

Postcardia-cum-Poetica #52

And I’ve reached the magic number of 52, representing an entire year of postcardia here! Despite long pauses with no postcards to post or falling behind in posting here, it appears that I’ve basically made up time, in the productive between times to round all this out in 52 weeks. You can click back and see #1 here from the 14th October 2016 (

This is the promo postcard for The Hamlet Apocalypse with words from Women Who Run With The Wolves. 

Postcardia-cum-Poetica #50

Fan art postcard of Totoro with words from Women Who Run With The Wolves (which is quite overwhelming as a page of text but is proving to be quite easy and playful in its smaller fragments!)
