Postcards from Europe - Postcard Swap

I received my postcard swap today from Postcards from Europe, organised by Rosie Gainsborough, Lucy Biddle, Katrina Currie and Chloe Bryon from Paulo Lacruz who is based in Alicante. It's a very cute hot toast! It also came with a postcard from the very talented Rosie Gainsborough.

The Postcards from Europe publication, featuring interviews with artists Mark Lazenby, Riitta Ikonen, Sophia Martineck, and Anthony Zinonsos, interviews with selected Postcards from Europe participants and selected postcards from the exhibition is available to view on here.

A short film of the project was made by Charlie Newland, and you can see some shots of the exhibition and book, and hear the organisers talking about the project.

Snowshill, Gloucestershire in January

Snowshill, Gloucestershire - close to Broadway Village.
From 'Broadway - A Village History' by Derek Parsons
Chapter 7 - Custom, Folklore and Superstition
"Among the Broadway customs Morris recorded was the practice of spreading corn husk at the door of a wife beater, the public thus notified that 'thrashing' had taken place there, and the man hopefully being suitably shamed into mending his ways. Another expression of moral indignation was reserved for unfaithful wives, who could find themselves serenaded in their homes by a mock band of players on pots and pans."
"Hedgehogs suffered from the superstition they stole milk from cows whilst they rested in the fields and carried windfall apples away on their backs."
