‘Warm, funny and frequently hilarious – a wonderful collection of cards celebrating the American Christmas.’
Martin Parr has put together another wonderful book from his personal collection of cards. This time he celebrates the American Christmas card. These are a fascinating eye-opener into American culture, as proud families everywhere (pets included) pose before the camera to send their Christmas greetings across the nation.
MAGNUM photographer Martin Parr’s work features in newspapers and magazines worldwide and has been exhibited in every continent. His project ‘Common Sense’ was exhibited simultaneously in more than 40 venues and his current retrospective exhibition is touring until 2004. A dedicated collector of cards, his books ‘Boring Postcards’, ‘Boring Postcards USA’ and ‘Langweilige Postkarten’ have been major publishing successes worldwide.
