Traveling, I almost only buy printed things, as they take up little space and are odd moments of history— lasting, and sometimes inexplicable relics.

I found a bin of beautiful old family (and otherwise) crests in an antique books and prints shop in Amsterdam that Tineke took me to. Also, this old post card and photo.

“Happy New Year!” and, perhaps, “Surviving the marriage!” or “Send help!”

Below are some fantastic old postcards purchased from one of the booksellers along the banks of the Seine.
