A special treat arrived in my mailbox yesterday from Sicily, Italy. It combines two things I love in postcards – maps and GLITTER!
Who doesn’t love glitter?! Glitter can make drab things like oceans so shiny and exciting. I also love the gradient on the word “Sicilia” and the horse and cart all glittered up. The use of a topographical map with a collage of scenic vignettes is quite novel and visually arresting too.
The sender knows what I like in postcards clearly, as the message indicates:
“A glitter map! How exciting, even if it has been out in the sun too long. But hey, we are Sicily so we will not get our hopes down! Even the last day we are going to a volcano, but still we are got to a beach sister or [unknown] or friends? Bye from X.”
The latter part of the message loses me – but hey, it’s Italy and vino and la dolce vita and glitter and all! Bellissimo!!!
