Hello Postcardsanon !
Here is my contribution to your blog.
I focused more on the manipulating aspect of advertising & the gullible side that we all have....hope I'm in the theme.
(Thanks very much for these; they're great! I like your take on the theme)

PopCards are inspired by Andy Warhol's dollar sign & other Pop Art from the 1960s onwards, and can be taken as either a critique or celebration of consumerism.
We usually receive postcards that portray places in their best light, or which sometimes don't reflect the real essence of a place. In terms of photography at least, it is often the 'other' in towns, cities & villages which offers a more interesting subject matter.
Please feel free to send your own postcard appropriations. It would be great to have a showcase works from around the UK, and abroad. Images can be sent via email to email@example.com
