Openinkstand Art & Calligraphy

I found a booth in a local antique store that sells vintage postcards by the pack for very cheap, but they are all packed up so you can’t see what’s in them. I bought some and most of them are quite plain touristy cards, but some are the most beautiful old vintage cards with black and white photography on the front, the back is just a little worn and has acquired this lovely sepia tone.

It is my special pleasure to use these postcards by writing on them with an equally old fashioned looking ink with old Spencerian calligraphy. I can imagine my recipients feel like s/he just pulled something out of the 1920s from their mailbox.
