I took a break from postcrossing for a few years, but now I am back and have hundreds of postcards to send out! I teach religious studies and instructional design at a state university. English is my primary language, but I can read French and German if it is written clearly. I especially enjoy postcards related to:
* religion, especially Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam, and Orthodox Christian Icons
* books and book related subjects
* Anything related to Amsterdam, including well-known buildings (Anne Frank House, Westerkerk, Nieuwendijk, The Royal Palace, Paradiso, etc.), places (Dam Square, Vondelpark, etc.), of artwork from one of the many museums (Stedelijk, Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum, etc.) scenes by the canals, etc. (I lived in Amsterdam from 2007 to 2009 and miss it.)
* art, modern (such as dada, surrealism, abstract, pop surrealism, etc.), renaissance, Pre-Raphaelites, and impressionism
* nature scenes, especially forests and beaches
* animals, especially dogs, ferrets, goats, and fish
* Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter
* Soviet propaganda posters
* Japanese wood block prints
* urban scenes
* music related, such as Led Zeppelin, Queen, Aerosmith, Janes Addiction, Nine Inch Nails, The Beatles, Beastie Boys, Black Sabbath, The Cure, The Eagles, Elvis Costello, Fleetwood Mac, Genesis, and Metallica.
* unusual themes
* handmade cards
* strange or interesting ad cards
But don't worry, I'll be happy with any postcard. I prefer to get postcards written on and stamped. I would prefer not to get greeting cards or cards sent in envelopes. Thanks for reading & sending!
I am always interested in direct swaps, I live in Florida, USA, and have many Disney & Disney World, and Florida related postcards. If this is something you'd like as part of a direct swap, please let me know. I put the pictures of all the cards I have available, have sent, and have received on my personal website (http://www.johnlcrow.com/postcards/). I have somewhere between 800-900 cards shown. Of these, 500-600 of them are blank and available for trading. Please take a look.
