Artistic Inspiration... The Postcard Age

Going on right now at the MFA in Boston is a fascinating exhibit of vintage postcards. I don't know about you, but I'm a big history buff and these small works of art combine interesting eras in history with great graphic art and old photographs. An employee of the museum (they get especially friendly to members who they see quite often) told me that this exhibit has the more artistically inclined guards all geeked up and sure enough, in the room the guards were viewing the postcards with great interest as were the rest of us. If you are anywhere near Boston, check it out. And yes... buy the book!
