A soothing antidote to video meetings, we also communicate in our team with postcards. This is something we started during fieldwork (more in our post here, and also in a forthcoming American Anthropologist piece), the sensory and material pleasures of postcards offer us a way of keeping in touch when distantly apart, either in different cities or now, most of us in the same city. Refreshing for not being a screen, the postcards are also a way for us to revisit past holidays, as we sort through and find cards to send, and imagine holidays we might take one day in the future too.
In a previous logbook post we mentioned the Auzoux workshops, which made papier mache anatomical models. Here is a postcard from this handcrafted past.
