Pop-up: Embroidered Photo Postcards
Welcome to our Pop Up Gallery. Here we curate artifacts and oddities in the Project B vintage photography collection. Featured now is: Pop-up: Embroidered Photo Postcards
Embroidery is an age old craft and as early as the 1900s, souvenir postcard publishers especially in Spain, Portugal and France made hand tinted souvenir photo postcards with layered silk thread embroidery. The most popular themes were Spanish actresses, singers and matadors. The vivid red, pink, blue and yellow embroidery thread make these postcards dramatic and dimensional and an inspiration to contemporary artists interested in photography textile combinations.
