60 NEW POSTCARDS HAVE ARRIVED !

A new herd of postcards in the Cow International Card collection. 
Thanks to the renowned "cartolinaro" Enrico Sturani, the Cow International Card collection has been enriched by new and extremely beautiful postcards. They come from throughout the world and from the opening years of the last century. Often they are images of “humoristic” designs, others are copies of 19th century paintings and others again are veritable reporting photographs. But who is the passionate collector who in his time gathered thousands of postcards ? The answer is to be found in the book “Memorie di un cartolinaro” (Memories of a postcard collector) written precisely by Enrico Sturani and published by ‘Coniglio’ in 2004. An amusing memoir on the adventures of the most important Italian postcard collector. The presentation of this friendly man with ‘cardophile tendencies’ comes from the fourth of the cover pages
 "Enrico Sturani was born in Turin in 1940. After a Master’s degree in Philosophy and a life spent writing extremely successful school books he realised in the 1980’s that his genial hobby of collecting postcards had generated a monster of more than a hundred thousand items. From that moment he has dedicated exhibitions, books, articles, conferences, university classes, to this postal vehicle with supporting illustrations, becoming the top specialist in the world. As such he has been invited to speak in Paris, in Helsinki, in Tokyo. Today one can no longer say, as did Totò, that “in Italy there are too many university graduates in 'Letters' (Arts) but none in postcards”.”.
