23 VAN GOGH

No handmade, no ad/free postcards.

Postcards can be store bought, museum bought, from a postcard box set, postcard perforated book set (neatly removed but may still contain perforated edge), from a postcard themed calendar (I bought a few of these in Germany, not sure if they are popular anywhere else? Cut neatly, of course) new or vintage. Zazzle and the like are also acceptable. Art can be drawing, illustration, painting, sculpture, design, photograph, collage, objet d'art, etc. It doesn't only have to be art from a museum it can be crafts, tiles, architecture, magazine and Book covers, movies, educational posters, other posters, children's book illustrations, reproduction. Vintage ads, etc. Some themes will be specific, such as lady, but. You can send abstract art if you can tell it represents lady/woman or if the title of the piece implies it. Other weeks the topic will be things like blue, or happy, or even a specific type of art or something about the artist. Art can be religious art-any religion and as this is sender's choice only sign up if you are open to receiving religious art. I know I have some to send I've bought in Church and Synagogue gift stores as well as in museums.

Besides museums, bookstores, you can find interesting art pc sets on Amazon, I know in Europe many church gift. Shops/counters sell artsy pcs. Either showing the inside or outside of the church. And sometimes pcs of the religious works in the church or of saints, etc.

International, no exact rating but alll 1's & 3's explained/responded to/working on and I reserve the right to remove swappers if needed. Please only sign up if you're open to receiving a variety of art types as explained above, knowing some may be a bit different. I will angel if you need to rate your partner a 1 - contact me if that is happening. If I need to angel I will try my best to stay on theme but if I have no more that fit the theme I will do profile surprise art card as the angel the best I can.

What are we still to write on the postcards or does it matter what we write besides the games of the swap Thank You

It would always be really nice if you write at least a couple sentences of a personal note to your swap partner the exact subject matter would be up to you but I feel it's never that enjoyable just to get "this is Van Gogh PC swap".
