Receive postcards

About Amiya...


I live in Delhi: the bustling, vibrant, historic, and sometimes infuriating capital of India. I love reading, listening to music, travelling, writing, spending time with animals, indulging my recent interest in photography, and trying out new foods (especially local street food).

I like written & stamped postcards because they carry a slice of life from a faraway corner of the world. If you speak Spanish, I'd love for you to write in your language because I'd like to practise whatever little Spanish I've learnt (so please keep your sentences simple, lol).

Here are some ideas for postcards I would love to receive, but honestly, I'll be thrilled with ANY card you pick for me. :)

My collection themes:
♥ Elephants (I'm crazy about them!)
♥ Inge Löök's "Two Old Ladies" (please see my collection to avoid duplication:
♥ Dance (especially ballet, contemporary, Broadway jazz or Latin American dances)
♥ Books / Reading (Book covers, people reading, libraries, illustrations from books)
♥ Doors and windows
♥ Soviet propaganda cards
♥ Eiffel Tower

Other cards I love a lot:
+ Cards showing anything special from your culture - food, festival, traditional dress, dance, theatre, cinema, music, artwork, graffiti, etc.
+ Scenes depicting social or political rebellion, civil uprising or citizen rallies (e.g. Fall of the Berlin Wall, Tiannanmen Square, demonstrations against apartheid, etc.)
+ Cards showing works of Gaëlle Boissonnard, Anne Taintor, Roy Lichtenstein, Graham Rawle's "Lost Consonants", Hans de Beer's "Little Polar Bear"
+ Pop Art, vintage and retro cards, reprints of vintage posters and advertisements
+ Johnny Depp! ♥
+ All sorts of illustrated cards
+ Painted view of cities or buildings
+ Extremely colourful cards
+ But also Black & White cards, especially people's faces
+ Beautiful cityscape or landscape (your city at night, mountains, ocean, beach, a big moon in the background)
+ Cards showing bistros & cafes
+ Cards with dogs, cats, polar bears, pandas or any other animals, and their babies :)
+ 3D lenticular cards and stamps
+ Postcards of unique shapes (other than rectangular)

But most of all, I would love to read your WORDS on the postcard - maybe even a few words in your own language. Please do write something, anything, on your card. If you don't know what to write, tell me three things you like a lot. :)

I'd love to get my paws on Roald Dahl stamps (UK), Batman stamps! (USA), and any of the Postcrossing stamps (issued in the Netherlands, Finland, Belarus and Guernsey).

Thank you for reading all this!
Have a great day. :)
