Benevolent Postcard Society


I’m taking part in a postcard lover’s dream project.

It is called : THE BENEVOLENT POSTCARD SOCIETY and belongs to the collage illustrator Lori Langille.

The plot is such; Two Hundred and Fifty members were gathered in a short space of time, by word of mouth (or facebook mouth) and Lori assembled a database of their postal addresses. Starting this month each member will send and receive a postcard from another random member, and after a year, each of us should have a collection of 12 exotic postcards and curious messages.

By September 2010, Lori Langille will collect the postcards and publish a book documenting the exchange. Marvelous!

I sent my first postcard to Cincinnati. When my postcard arrives (which should be soon) I’ll post them both here for you to see.
