The fascinating history of postcards and creative how-tos for using old postcards and making new ones. Full of interesting trivia. Kids learn how to make their own postcards, folding postcards, and postcard albums, as well as how to create codes, send secret messages, and use unusual visual techniques. Ideal for highly motivated students as well as those who will be thrilled by a "short" assignment. Once bitten by the "postcard bug," kids will find, make, and use postcards everywhere! Includes full-colour illustrations by Mark Thurman.
