Aunts Pat & Carol were unable to find a postcard while visiting Pendleton recently, so they sent me this wooden postcard from Silver Falls State Park.
I was interested in this wooden postcard because it is a normal postcard attached to a birch wood board. I feel like most wooden postcards I’ve seen have the image burned on the wood itself.
This lead me to the postcard’s website, (birchwoodpostcards.com) where I learned that you can choose a variety of images, and they will drop your site’s name onto the photography, then produce the postcard and sell them to you. Very interesting.
Sara sent this from the Whitney Museum of Art. (I’m still living off the postcard largess of that October visit to NYC.) She reports that she did not see this particular work by Alex Israel, but she loved the odd shape.
I loved it too.
