About Karsten...


I am Karsten, an archaeologist and art historian, so therefore I love postcards depicting ruins, monuments, castles, churches, mosques, excavations, temples or artefacts from museums for example. While I very much like religious buildings as an important part of world history, design and architecture, I would appreciate not getting any "religious cards", like such promoting religious beliefs, prayers etc, I am really not into it ;)

Likewise, I am pleased with:
- vintage/very old postcards
- landscapes especially in winter,
- mountain views
- lakes, the ocean, thunderstorms
- "Disney"-postcards
- railways, train stations
- steampunk
- archives/libraries
- propaganda-cards from, for example, former socialist/communist countries, American propaganda during the World Wars, war photography
- aircrafts, local airports
- ships of any kind
- Dutch East India Company
- black humour
- extremely small or big postcards :)
- AD-cards ;), but local ones, please^^

Beloved are many stamps on my postcards, so if possible, please use low-valent-stamps to fill the postage or/and if you have and like, used stamps. I also like EUROPA stamps. If possible, please get your card stamped in your local post office :)

You can always cut a piece of cardboard food package sold in your country (cookies, fried meals, dry fruit, etc.) in about postcard size, use the other side of the cardboard for stamps, address and add a few words what the product is about, translation of the text etc. Very appreciated are packages with other than Latin alphabet. :)

If you have no ideas of filling out the card, you may tell me about...
- your personal funny stereotypes of anything (countries, regions, languages...)
- places, you definitely would love to visit worldwide
- your favourite meal including a short recipe
- ...

@ all - Don't be shy, use your handwriting, even others may call it unreadable ;), Wer kann, darf auch gern mit Kurrentschriften ran an den Stift.
@ Deutsche Post-Nutzer: Ich freue mich über Ortsstempel statt der Standarddinger ausm Briefzentrum :)
@ North Indians/Nepalis: अगर आप हिंदी बोल सकते हैं, देवनागरी का उपयोग करें!

@ more: Schrijf gerust Nederlands, Fries of Nedersaksisch. Fiel it frij om Nederlân, Frysk of Nedersaksysk te skriuwen. Ik wurr mi freien, Koorten in Nedderlandsch, Frasch un Plattdüütsch to kregen. Dank u! Tige tank! Dank di!
