I just learned from this month´s issue that “deltiology” is the collection and study of postcards. Our cover story features IMCPL’s postcard collection, which can be viewed at the Nina Mason Pulliam Special Collections Room on the 6th Floor of Central Library, OR digitally on our website.
I’ve pasted both sides of one of the postcards below, but to avoid neck injuries you’ll want to look at the collection online or visit the Special Collections Room.
Click on the image at the left to open an e-copy of the newsletter. Paper copies of Reading in Indianapolis can be picked up at any library location, and at the locations listed at the bottom of page 10.
Click on the first postcard image below to visit the digital postcard collection. Your usual pathway will be a click on “Digital Libraries” on our homepage’s lower left.
