Postcrossing.com is a site where you can sign up to send and receive postcards from across the world. (It is #14 on my list of 14 things that inspired me in 2008.) Most people send postcards of photos of their local area. I’ve been sending postcards of photos of Chicago’s 2016 Olympic bid.
Wouldn’t it be cool to send a pencil rubbing? Yeah! This would combine two loves of mine. Postcrossing and pencil rubbings! You can’t really do a pencil rubbing with thick postcard paper, so I’ll have to use thinner paper for the rubbing and spray mount it onto some postcard stock. And I’ll spray fix the graphite so it doesn’t smear through the mail.
I’m also thinking about doing a dual-card where half the card is the pencil rubbing, the other half is a photo of the building.
