The picture postcard evokes a holiday spirit, acts as a souvenir, kindles wanderlust, and can temporarily satisfy the yearning to experience foreign places. Beat Schlatter is one of Switzerland’s best-known cabaret performers and actors, but also a passionate postcard collector. The majority of his extensive collection dates from between the 1960s and 1980s, a time often considered the pinnacle of European tourism. Schlatter selected more than 400 postcards from his collection for this publication, organising them in twelve pictorial chapters (hotels, beach promenades, gardens and fountains, cityscapes by night, Alpine roads, etc.) that will spark curiosity and wonder.
