    I’ve made this one-off-a-kind album with hyper-idealistic-tourists-postcards. I bought 16 postcards for €5,00. Then stitched them together back on back and bound all into a four hole Japanese style stab-binding. Finally I painted the blue skies on the postcards white. Only during heatwaves the sky is red.
