Colophon: "This book is a print exchange by an international group of Ladies of Letterpress members. ... [W]e've each printed an edition of 125 postcards greeting each other from distant places. These postcards were inspired by mid-century postcards we remember, with the friendly phrases 'Greetings from...' or 'Hello from...,' received each summer from vacationing friends. For the summer of 2010, we greet each other from our hometowns and our presses, creating a unique collection of letterpress printed cards."
