Why so? Obviously because I send my cards usually in an envelope since the postage is the same here in Turkey for the letter and the postcard to foreign countries. So it is safer in the envelope I suppose. And I usually do not write anything by hand since my handwriting is not so good anymore I think.
Well this way the card lost the opera singer's head, arms and bust as well as the crumpled bottom end of her frock's long skirt. Torn out by the artist or in the post? Yet now the remaining piece somehow reminds me of a natural gas power plant. Also Grigori's logo is labelled the other side so the card is still singing yet another tune: No John Rays! In short, I have received an interesting altered "futuristanbul" card. Many thanks Grigori for your changes and additions.
