I love non-paper postcards that are made from other materials than the standard print. Something different always stands out from the crowd and a new tactile experience is always fun.
This is the only cork postcard I have. It’s from Corsica, France’s large Mediterranean island.
I got this postcard shortly after I had lived in Germany for awhile and could read and speak German. Now I have little idea what the back of this postcard says:
Peinture sur liège inaltérable [Painting on cork]
La Corse [Corsica]
Vieille rue de Sartène [old road in the town of Sartène]
I cannot figure out the connection between cork and Corsica other than the first 3 letters and a connection to wine. I googled “Peinture sur liège inaltérable” and found a few other cork postcards from Corsica – perhaps it’s a local tradition? Let me know if you know the connection (or can translate all the German message).
