Martins, M.L. (2017). The Illustrated Postcards and the Contemporary

“The picture postcard had a strong impact on the correspondence system at the beginning of the twentieth century and even functioned as the current telephone call (Philips, 2000; Staff, 1966), or as the latest SMS and e-mail (Martins & Oliveira, 2011b, p. 3). From an equally historical perspective and extending this reading to more recent communication tools, we can say that the postcard is also a precursor of blogs and eCards, being a predecessor of multimedia communication itself (Correia, 2008; Correia & Martins 2011; Martins & Belt, 2014).”| M0re Information
