Linen Postcard Showcase

This is a display of linen postcards from my collection. I have chosen one from each of the categories featured in the Linen Postcards book by Mark Werther and Lorenzo Mott.

I love the colorful and graphic linen postcards, but I dislike the typical linen view card unless it falls into one of the other categories I collect. I am a low-budget collector—I like to look for attractive and/or interesting linen cards in the lower price ranges.
