Welcome to “The Postcard Album”
“The Postcard Album” (TPA), an international publication for collectors of old picture postcards (ppc’s), is around for more than 30 years by now. Strictly a hobby project, non-profit orientated, published when time and budget allows.
TPA covers various aspects of interest to ppc collectors. Research on old, long gone (German) postcard printers and publishers has become the major topic. A specialised aspect of the postcard collecting hobby, on topics you might never have thought of before.
The work of myself, occasionally together with other interested collectors from various countries, is to reconstruct company histories, collecting data on their ppc production, identifying trademarks and related matters. Research results are published more detailed/illustrated in the TPA magazine.
Take a look at some of the ppc research features, historical back ground, major German postcard printers/exporters, logo’s and trademarks, postcard finds and trivia etc. Any questions? Please ask.
See an issue of “The Postcard Album” and judge for yourself! It is unique, packed with information, well illustrated. – Despite the actual strange times TPA 31 was published! The biggest TPA issue ever (84 pages)! See NEWS for more details, please.
Available are 48 free articles from old TPA issues now in pdf-file format. Although published longer ago, giving an idea what it all about. TPA Articles
This hobby web site will be updated regularly (as time permits). I recommend to visit the NEWS page from time to time. For information on (new) site contents and the upcoming TPA issue.
