April Picture Postcard Monthly out today

The April issue of PPM is available from today (Thursday March 22) – when it will be delivered to most subscribers’ homes.

You can order your copy from us, or it will be available from selected dealers at fairs around the country, including the Festival of Cards at Shepton Mallet, Somerset, which is being held tomorrow and Saturday (March 23/24).

Major stories in this edition include an in-depth look at Britain’s first postcard magazine, which started 116 years ago, the postcard world of King Edward VII, the Goring-on-Thames floods of 1903, the World War One hero and Victoria Cross recipient whose life was saved by a packet of postcards in his top pocket, famous wooden buildings on postcards, a look at The Netherlands from the air,  the cartoonist and satirist Martin Anderson (known as Cynicus), and how photographers in the Golden Age helped turn those daytime views into night scenes.

The 56-page a month Picture Postcard Monthly costs £3.85. An annual subscription is £38 in the UK. Different rates apply for the readers we have in 24 countries outside of Britain.
