About

Postcards are the original social media.

Welcome to my world. This is a world where hand-written greetings and wonderful images make people smile. This is a world where a small piece of paper is meant to be saved and possibly cherished for a lifetime. This is a world of sets and categories, printing and cursive, fountain pens and typewriters, vintage stamps and collectible postmarks. This is a world of memories and sentimentality. Postcards are the original Facebook. And where Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat are fleeting snippets of life, but postcards are histories.

What is a Deltiologist?
A Deltiologist is someone who collects postcards.

How did you get started collecting postcards?
When I was 5 years old my Grandfather who lived in Germany sent me a postcard with a cute illustration of a little girl. Soon, I was collecting the whole series as well as postcards from everywhere and everyone.

How many collections do you have?
I have 3 main collections:
• postcards from family members, kept in an album chronologically so that it tells a family history.
• a large collection of postcards from trading sites that range from camels to Inge Löök (a Finnish artist).
• a collection of antique French postcards from Poisson d’Avril (First of April).

Why postcards?
• Postcards are the old-school Facebook. It’s an easy way to send a snippet of communication to someone.
• Postcards are cheaper to send – and faster to write - than letters.
• Unlike letters, postcards have pictures that can be put on fridge or in an album and make great souvenirs.
• It’s much easier to send a stranger a postcard than a letter – thus opening up the world to meet new people and learn about new places.

Do you also collect stamps?
How’d you guess?

Are you on any social media?
Yes, you can find MaxAndCoPost on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. I also have a blog at MaxAndCoPost.com
