Series VI: Postcard Collection 4 boxes

This series consists of postcards collected by Josef and Anni Albers during their travels throughout the United States, Europe and Latin America. The bulk of them are loose and all are arranged by location. Josef created postcard collages with a portion of them. Highlights of the postcards include colorful postcards from Hawaii and the continental United States and photograph postcards from various states in Mexico portraying places that Josef and Anni Albers visited. Postcards by Hugo Brehme are included among them. Detailed cataloguing information for the postcard collages can be found in the “Archive” section of the Josef and Anni Albers Collection database. Available to researchers by request.
