Postcard Collective - Fall 2013 Submission
In October, I wrote about inventorying books and the forgotten discovery that would turn into the next Postcard Collective entry. Here it is. I regret the spelling error I didn't find on the back of the card until all 50 pieces were printed and adhered. Here's to discovering a green colored pencil in the Photo Crypt that matched the color of the text.
I purchased Gregory Crewdson's Twilight at Half Price Books in Houston in 2002. I left Texas for Oregon then Washington and Indiana. I opened the monograph for the first time in years last month and discovered a Polaroid of the photographer that my ex placed inside the front cover. I carried around the visage of a man so changed in a book nearly forgotten for over a decade without realizing it. I printed 50 postcards with the hope that one makes it inside a Crewdson publication to be overlooked and remembered again and again.
