In May 2012 with help of my little daughter' lucky hand I was a happy one to send the card with number RU - 1 000 000 (http://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/RU-1000000 ).
I will be glad to see cards on themes:
- propaganda posters (of DPRK, PRC, USSR, USA etc.),
- UNESCO WHS,
- rare countries postcards (even if you don't live there),
- vintage ads (Coca-Cola etc.),
- rulers, famous persons of your country,
- reproductions of paintings by famous artists,
- Texas postcards,
- images of banknotes and coins,
- drilling rigs & eqpt,
- your favorite cards ...
Sorry I'm not a fan of self-made cards.
Please no "funny" animals and no THIN cards.
Please put the date on the card.
Nice stamps are appreciated!
On the back side of the card you can take part in a short survey.
