As a fundraiser for our MA show to be held here in Bristol in June, an anonymous Postcard sale was organised by one of the more acute members of our group, and a fabulous success it was too.

The cards could be laid onto a scanner of some sort and details of the artist contributing the card came up on the screen – very nifty!

Got vandalise some more postcards – its addicitve!
