I've been a swap-bot member since 2010, but I've been fairly inactive for the past three years, mostly for monetary reasons. Occasionally I will get a few bucks in my pocket and try swapping again.
I'm not actively collecting postcards anymore. The collection was getting out of hand. That doesn't mean I won't sign up for swaps from time to time I have so many to share. I've decided to leave this list up to give people a general idea of the things I like
What I like:
*subversive & weird
*art and illustration
*book covers/ reading
*flowers and plants (especially wildflowers, violets are a favorite)
*nature and nature scenery
*animals (especially unusual animals, frogs, CATS, foxes, insects, sea life... please no dogs)
*birds (OWLS, crows/ravens, songbirds, penguins. ostrich and kiwi)
*weather (lightning,rain, rainbow,snow, etc.)
*vintage of any of the above topics
What I don't like:
*ads cards unless it is really cool
I'm still happy with postcards from the following artists/ postcard books
The art of Instruction: 100 postcards from vintage educational charts
I do collect commemorative stamps and use the duplicates for art projects. It really makes my day when people use cool stamps to send their mail! An envelope with a plain old flag stamp on it is a lost opportunity! The next time you buy stamps go to the post office and take a look at all the beautiful choices.
I like nicely made homemade postcards, which I consider a form of mail art. I think it's a shame most people here seem to hate them.
