Paris Correspondence School

I am very excited by the idea of this show, I am sending postcards of Felixstowe Port Terminal and H.R.H. Princess Diana to Paris, as I feel that the French capitals art scene will benefit from both these images.
I really like the 'old-fashioned' idea of the postal service, precious artworks that can be man-handled and put through archaic machinery, then sent to somewhere that you only know through letters and numbers on a page. The postcard is delivered, hopefully, to its correct destination in Paris a few days later.
The idea that you can look up the address on a map so you understand where your postcard will end up; that I will not experience that same journey is fascinating to me.
