After an absence from the Paris Postcard Show I will be returning as a stand holder in May. Click here for details Cartexpo Paris Postcard Show May 11 and 12th; Espace Champerret, Porte Champerret. This new venue for the show is also the perennial location for the fall paper show.
As always I will be featuring a wide selection of nudes, erotica and risque postcards as well as an excellent selection of advertising, propaganda, avant-garde, mechanical and illustrated postcards. I hope to see you at the show.
