The Immigrant Story Behind the Classic ?Greetings From? Postcards

quote [ One popular format for linen postcards was the ?Greetings From? style, which had been inspired by the ?Gruss Aus? (?Greeting From?) postcards Teich had known as a young man in Germany. The German postcards featured local views with subdued lettering and a muted color palette; Teich?s American incarnation reflected the popular streamlined aesthetic of the time, featuring the name of a state, city, or attraction?emblazoned in large 3D letters?with miniature images of regional scenes depicted within. ]

Spoiler: the immigrant story is featured in the quote already. But check out the link for colorful examples.

Sneaking into the Forbidden City with our Travel Heroine du Jour

quote [ Alexandra (not her real name, but more on that later) grew up in the ๎le-de-France region with a Freemason father and a Catholic mother. Where most girls her age were being pressed to take up needle-point, Alexandra spent her time fasting, and plotting a run away trip to England, almost as if she knew she were destined for a spiritual path. She didn?t quite have the money to see it through, being only 15, but it didn?t matter. The trip had jump-started a lifelong taste for adventure in her. ]

From a time capsule shed in the Antarctic to an abandoned house somewhere in China or a cozy pub in London, virtually travel the world with this nifty little site, hosted appropriately enough by a window and door replacement company called Safe Style. ]
