The first Vancouver Postcard Club meeting of 2017 will be January 15, 2017 from 11:30 am to 2 pm at the Hastings Community Centre in the Board Room.
Please note the change of date – due to the New Year’s holiday on the first Sunday of this month.
Our speaker will be Rein Stamm whose topic will be: “What is a postcard?”
“What is a postcard?” will touch on a number of postcard types. We are all familiar with standard ‘vintage’ postcards (5.5 by 3.5 inches) and the slightly larger modern continentals. The presentation will feature: a few of the much smaller and much larger postcards; postcards made from various materials; postcards in a variety of shapes; and more.
Those attending are encouraged to bring along at least one postcard from their own collection that might prompt a deltiologist to say: “What? Really? This is a postcard?”
Rein, as usual, has a 4,000 plus postcard collection for sale. This year he’s helping Ron Souch with the VPC’s annual postcard show. Some additional information about Rein and his involvement with the shadowy world of ephemera can be found on Instagram. Usernames: tallguywithtie or vrbppShow
