  1. SPA’s Post Card Exchange: a history by Robyn Waghorn. Imprint Magazine: Summer 2014.

    We wanted to make participation accessible to both SPA members and other printmakers which
    is why we chose the post card as a form of art. Post card communication was a direct result of postal reform and the development of mass printing techniques including photography during the 1800’s.

    Postcards were, for most people, the nearest thing to immediate communication. They were bright spots in the lives of many people who might never have moved beyond a few square kilometres.

    Today, despite the development of electronic communications, the postcard continues to be a source of joy for people.
