    I'm still sticking with them looking like Albrecht Durer postcards.

    Neat but postcardy.

    Not so much of a design, since it's not useful as it's simply beautiful, it's Ai Weiwei's work in Tate Modern London:

    What's all this about? From Tate's site:

    Now I'm thinking about a modern Patrick Bateman conversation about cards.

    The tiki look was actually North African as this exhibition was to promote the French colonies in N Africa and Vietnam for commerce. African carvings and textiles paired well with the Deco look of the 1930 and the art became very popular in France at that time. An older friend of mine collected tons of wonderful African carvings and art at the Paris flea markets in the late 60's and early 70's when original owners who had acquired these pieces in the 30's/40's had passed away and their families sold their household items. I love the look of this next to classic Corbusier furniture.
