About carrotkate...

I live in Saint Louis, Missouri and work for a local university. If I'm sending you something, there's a good chance I will try to make sure it was made locally or represents something interesting about my part of the world. Or, it will be a black and white image, because I love b/w photography of all sorts!

I also love handmade objects and items with a unique story or special history (even the ordinary and obvious), so I'm excited to receive notes & cards of all varieties. I see this as a way to explore how artistic the post can be, and I value creative opportunities for expression, so any form of mail art sent my way would be greatly appreciated.

If you're looking for more specific info about my preferences and themes for postcards, it may be helpful to know I especially like:
***interesting typography and signage
***letterpress, linocuts, woodblocks, printmaking
***bicycling themed
***country, city, state maps or subway/metro maps
***photos of the out of doors (including in the city - what does your backyard look like?)
***vintage themed, especially if it's campy, kitschy, or retro
***occult themed, including cemeteries, headstones, and Dia de Los Muertos
***French Bulldogs
