fellow travelers: 28cents.

fellow travelers is our chance to shine a spotlight on greatness from the internet’s travel community. It is not our list of poputchiks. Just some wanderers who we consider outstanding.

28cents is a compendium of your humble means of analog communication, the postcard. When Ms. Lis (who does a bit of wandering herself) began this tumblr project in March of 2011, you could send a postcard in the US for a quarter and a few pennies. Postcard designs range from simple promos of local businesses and tourist traps to the more personal and handmade varieties — and they all seem to carry the same message to their recipient: I’m thinking of you, now, in this place. It’s interesting to see one person’s collection of these markers of space and time.

  1. I still love sending mails, I still love receving such a stuff. I really think that’s something what’s on everybody’s own self. These mails get more from the personility of the senders.
    The e-mails have that unpersonal style, so common after all.
    So interesting your post.

    • It’s true! Who doesn’t like to get something in the mail? And postcards are a little tactile thing that take the reverse journey that you do: the farther from home you get, you send a lil postcard-breadcrumb back… Thank you for reading!
