The celebrated photographer and social commentator Martin Parr follows up his Boring Postcards series with a new instalment of his bizarre postcard collection. Produced throughout Southern Europe during the 1970s, these cards show shamelessly idealised photographs of romantic lovers and perfect families. Originating as domestic icons, these images have their roots in Catholic religious imagery. Both a revealing social-historical document and a hilariously funny coffee-table collection, they will appeal to all connoisseurs of kitsch. 132 colour reproductions.
