THE POSTCARD ALBUM

POSTCARD PRINTER & PUBLISHER RESEARCH

 

Most TPA issues are out of stock for many years now. However, I feel that some material once published deserves to be made available to interested collectors and researchers. A selection of articles from old TPA issues, starting with issue 14. Converted into pdf-files, a format that is widely used for exchange of data, as software to read or print is available free of charge.

Article download

Each article bears an own TPA issue / article number (in blue). Just double click onto article number and a new window opens. Now you can either read, print or save the article on your computer. In case something doesn’t work please contact me. Articles can be forwarded also by e-mail if you wish. Make sure to read the notice and technical information first. Thank you!

Please note: The articles come exactly as they were once found in old TPA issues. They might contain spelling mistakes as well as information that was corrected or updated at a later date.

‘Page’ stands for A4 format = 210 x 297 mm size. Illustrations are usually monochrome - b/w. File resolution is reduced to standard quality in order to keep file size as small as possible (some up to several MB’s). Make sure your browser can open pdf-file format.

Articles were not written all by myself. Please note that original authors are still holding all rights. Any material provided is for your own personal use only.
