Cally Trench and Alison Carter Tai: Postcard Exchange

Cally Trench and Alison Carter Tai sent each other postcards from September 2009 until the end of Remarkable and Curious Conversations. The postcards were from places visited, or reflected a theme (lobsters, beds, portraits, the colour blue), or just seemed appropriate at the time. The messages mused on art, design, history and everyday life.
