The Deltiology Deity has been busy lately and not been blogging, but while he was chained to his desktop computer his friends and family have been out exploring and enjoying the world.
The postcard below arrived a few days ago from Shenandoah National Park, Virginia and is already a favourite:
Unfortunately, my picture of this postcard can’t do it justice. As not only is it 3D but it is also animated! If you move the card, the animals move along with it. This is, unquestionably, one of my best gimmick postcards. It’s the first I have of the animated type (although my daughter already has a few of these.) But there is another first on the reverse side:
Note the round stamp (well, with ridged round). I’ve received odd shapes of stamps before, but I believe this is the first circular stamp I have in the collection.
Thought you might like this 3D card to add to your collection. We are having a great time sitting in the “eating area” today with the rain pouring down.”
Turns out the trip wasn’t as great as the postcard!
