Ricordo di...















There is a whole genre of well, postcards I suppose, which come in card covers and look like small books and, within, have a long concertina style piece of paper, folded to make pages, on which is printed a whole series of photographs taken from postcard views of the place concerned. You get these from all over the world and in a number of different formats of course and the Italians seemed particularly keen on producing them: these very early 20th-century ones seem to me to be worth celebrating as much for their covers as for their contents.
