Blankety blank

Aren't there some fantastic cards this year? Loads to love.  

But what's going on with the blank cards?  Some have now been replaced but there's still some there.  Are they placeholders for yet more goodies to come?  Let's hope so.

As for contributors you feel the list of contributors on the website may not be complete.  Will we see more contributors announced?  Let's hope so.

Has at least one of the big names been diverted to the Dubai sale? are they a secret name? or have they not contributed this year?

Pass... It's a puzzle alright

The blank card question now seems to be addressed on the website - "Artists from all over the world produce postcards for RCA Secret, and the idiosyncrasies of the international postage system mean they don't always arrive on time. Those spaces will be filled with wondrous images, so check back over the next few days to see the late arrivals. Cards 1668, 1793, 1921, 1964, 2013, 2021, 2207, 2955 and 2982 are not blanks (look closely), and are presented as the artists intended"

I haven't made it over to the exhibition yet and have only done a quick flick through of the cards online, I'm planning on getting over there one evening this week. However, initial thoughts:

- The website and quality of scans of cards is much better (after some initial bugs as a result of me using an old browser version)

- So many beautiful cards (from contributors I like and have bought in the past) suffer from bent corners, RCA need to look into sending out proper cardboard envelopes for the return of the cards (especially if the price keeps increasing!)

There are some beautiful cards this year though.
