For some time a while back I created a series of wry collages on academic (mostly linguistic) subjects, according to a strict formula: the background had to be a postcard I had gotten in the mail; I supplied a caption, covering up an existing one where necessary; and I then embellished the composition with stickers from a sticker-a-day assortment for primary school teachers (supplied by Elizabeth Daingerfield Zwicky), occasionally supplemented by other images.
A framed sampling of these academic “postcard collages” is on display at the Stanford Humanities Center.
Now Ned Deily has scanned an assortment of these and figured out how to make them viewable on-line. There are 39 of them, plus one from another postcard series, in the album here.
