Hello! I live just outside of Chicago and am excited to be a part of postcrossing!
Post cards I enjoy are ones that show sites, or have things specific to the region. I love Elvis, the Stones,all things Hugh Laurie, outhouses, black and white, vampire lore, medical oddities, freaks, taxidermy, embalming, funeral, Edgar Allan Poe, cemetary monuments, squirrels,sea horses, capybaras, jackolopes, gnomes, carousels, and I would love to have cards with the Pyramids of Giza, or the other wonders of the world. I love sunset/sunrise scenes, natural phenomenoms (like rock formations or mountains, or funky trees),
I'd love postcards depicting famous composers
Anything relating to historical monuments/ Vatican/ 7 wonders of the world, etc would be appreciated.
I like autumn and winter scenes as well.
Risque and nudes are ok, and if you have touristy cards, those are much appreciated!
I've become a fan of "map" cards as well.
Northern lights, space, nature are welcomed.
I have nothing at all in my collection from Iceland Greenland or northern Canada. (Basically above the arctic circle).
Lately I've become interested in typewriter cards of all over the world, old-fashioned typewriters. If you have one I'd love it! I've begun collecting recipe cards from the USA, as well as "license plate" postcards from the states.
I like cards of nature (ie streams, woods, etc) rather than people, unless it's odd. No cartoon cards unless specific.
VERY welcome to direct swaps and pen palling
