British Museum/Post Card Series

While we visited the British Museum, we were given a task to find and pick out our favorite post card series that was on display. There were so many different types of post cards like political, vacation, feminism, etc. They were all interesting to look at but I think that I had a favorite from the start. There was a section of post cards called the “Altered Post Cards.” Maybe the visuals were not as fascinating as the rest, but I enjoyed the premise behind these. They were tweaked in some way to create visual interest. Whether it be photoshop, hole-punching, or even burning, these post cards were all different. It took a casual post card and altered it in some way. For example, there was a Statue of Liberty post card that was photoshopped so it would have a life jacket on. Small yet funny stuff like that made me pick this series over the rest.
