100 Days of COVID-19, Day 49

My Art in the Time of a Pandemic

Sending you warm greetings!

Deltiology - Terminology for the study of postcards.  Taken from Greek δελτίονdeltion, diminutive of δέλτοςdeltos, writing tablet, letter; and -λογία, -logia.  This term was first used by Professor Randall Rhodes of Ashland, Ohio in 1945.  Alternate words for the study of postcards is Cartology and Cartophilist.

These are my handmade postcards created each day during the pandemic.  I wish everyone good health and cheer during this time.  💛Stay safe!
