Some new postcards in my own collection. Grabbed them at a flea market last weekend (200 km away from my town — that’s where the closest flea market is!) I’m especially excited about the top one: Vladimir Zarubin, 1986. Run only 700,000 copies. Compare to his usual runs: five, six million. So it’s considered rare, and I’ve never run across one until now. Very happy indeed!

"Holiday" by Fedot Sychkov, a Russian Mordovian artist.
I visited Saransk (the capital of Mordovia rep.) for the first time this spring, and I really liked their traditional fashion. They could do a full museum just on fashion. So bright and colorful, so full of smallest detail!
