Product Description

Review

'A curious mix of transience, sentimentality, obsolescence and nostalgia surrounds the humble postcard, which makes them a fertile format for an artist to express themselves. The past 20 years or so has seen a range of artists utilising the postcard, including Rachel Whiteread, Ellsworth Kelly, Gilbert and George and many others. Jeremy Cooper traces this history from the 1900s through to Surrealism and conceptual art and up to the present. This is not a tenuous theme, but a fascinating one, that takes in many important artists on the way.' - The Bookseller

Format: Hardcover
Beautifully produced - incredibly well edited full of surprises and joy. A considered intelligent take on the postcard as art medium which to now has been ludicrously overlooked and now has, at the very least, begun. Love it.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Well produced, a good range of work by contemporary artists. Good design and organisation. A comprehensive survey. However my own entry is misleading and therefore a shadow of doubt is cast (for me) upon the authority of other research/writing in the book.
