I am an old-fashioned man who believes in romance and chivalry. I believe that a man should always be a gentleman, treat all people with respect, supports and helps. I live within my means; slow, quiet, purposeful. Happiness comes from within. I am happy, simply put, with tennis, books and arts. I work voice as a narrator (voice-over), in my spare time I like watching and playing tennis, going to the museums, visiting castle ruins. I’m a huge fan of of classic literature. My favorite authors are Charles Dickens, Henry James, Daphne du Maurier, my favorite poet is Andrew Marvell, I adore poem: The Definition of Love. If I could choose when I was born I would choose the 18th-century and first part of the 19th-century; mainly for the art, culture and manners. I have a passion for collecting maxi-cards (stamp and postmark on picture side of postcard) special postmarks and special cancellation. I also love special rubber stamp: currently my collection includes almost 2000 different ink-stamps. It’s an easy way to see where I’ve been; castles, palaces, museums, exhibitions. Looking at my collection not only reminds me where I’ve been, but the little, yet unforgettable details surrounding it. Some of the ink stamps have been easy to get, some of them quite the challenge. They’re good, truly special memories!
NO hand-made, folded cards, free add cards, length, large size, 3D, animals, war, fantasy. Do NOT use stickers and washi tapes!
Please use as many stamps as you can. Please put the date. I like my cards written and stamped.
It's fun to look for a card what fits the wishes of the reciever. I do my best to make the reciever happy and hope I'll get some nice cards too. What to send me? You can check my favourites for inspiration; my favorites are a mix of cards I've received and really like and others I've seen, they show the types of cards I like.
