There are no "red" States, no "blue" States,

only the United States of America? (a Jasper Johns in my album of postcards)

My "50 US States Postcard" album that I got inspired to organize during the 2020 Election:

I have a collection of "States" postcards, (most inherited from my great aunt)

but a few are missing, and I have asked some of my mail art friends,

if they have any US States postcards to please send. Especially wanting are

the postcards (boring? or interesting?) that have the State's name/map, etc.

And a few have already arrived, yay!

Thank you, Mim Scalin:

Thank you, Debra Mulnick:

Thank you, David Stafford (with some great humor!):

And many thanks to Cascadia ArtPost for 27 postcards, wow:

vintage (fab trolley cars!)...and some with the Peeps:

and these, too, from Washington State, of course:

Hi Heide, I'd like to have the State's name...even its map on the postcard,

but it is not necessary. Any US state postcard is just fine, thanks xxx

Does the postcard have to have the name of the state in big letters?

Thanks, Nancy, and I still need from Maine...

just hopeful that you might be able to send one or two?

Also waiting for postcards from Connecticut from Neil Gordon :-)

Lovely New England!

Seeing one is pleasant. Seeing different ones together is so ... full of art ... artful! Does this updated list mean you now have Maine?
