Editorial Reviews

Review

'Not to be missed: 160 views of Germany ... each more dreary than the next - and yet more comical. Langweillige Postkarten is not boring at all.' (Die Tageszeitung)

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Jill Bredal on April 6, 2003
There is something addictive about this little book, filled with seemingly dull, commercial postcards from Germany. The heft and compact size of it make you want to pick it up again and again and dream about the modern Europe of the 60's and 70's. No words get in the way. The images are of autobahns, health spas, restaurants, apartment buildings...and the overall effect of seeing these tidy, newly built spaces--without people--is somehow poignant, hopeful, serene and surreal. Often, geometric shapes dominate a landscape or visual field, and the postcard becomes a reduced, abstract scene which may or may not have been photographed on earth. "Boring" postcards is strangely fascinating!
