The Thorsten von Overgaard Gallery Store - Printed Photography Gallery Postcards A5 from all over the world


Postcards by Thorsten von Overgaard

I always handwrite a lot of letters and postcards when I travel the world and send them to people I met in the past in other parts of the world.

Annoyed about the narrow and ugly selection of available postcards even in tourist hotspots like London, Tokyo, Rome and more, I decided to make quality postcards of the kind and quality I would like to buy and send.

"I'm here, I'm doign good, I was thinking of you"
You want a postcard that represents you, shows your mood and what you are experiencing, and you want to write something nice to somebody to show you caere about them.

Square and simple

Paper is a great invention. It is simple, square and you can write on it and send it across the planet to someone. The mother of all push-messages and notifications.

The short history of the postcard

A Prussian postal official, Dr. Heinrich von Stephan, first proposed an "open post-sheet" made of stiff paper in 1865. His proposal was denied on grounds of being too radical (!). In 1869, the post office of Austria-Hungary accepted a similar proposal, and 3 million cards were mailed within the first 3 months. The first known picture postcard, with an image on one side, was created in France in 1870 by Léon Besnardeau. The bookdealer August Schwartz from Germany is regarded the inventor of the illustrated postcard. On July 16, 1870, he mailed a post correspondence card with an image of a man with a cannon. In Japan postcards were introduced in 1873, shortly after stamps were introduced. Cards showing images increased in number during the 1880s. Images of the newly built Eiffel Tower in 1889 gave impetus to the postcard, leading to the so-called "golden age" of the picture postcard. This golden age began slightly earlier in Europe than the United States where the Chicago World's Fair in 1893 excited many attendees with its line of "Official Souvenir" postals, which popularized the idea of picture postcards.
