As you know, here at the Culture Tourist, we’re all about combining art and travel together. Well, after I’ve got such a nice feedback regarding my Christmas cards inspired by Amsterdam I’ve decided to introduce ‘Products‘ as a new feature on the blog. And I’m very excited about that! All of our products will be created by me or in collaboration with other artists. And you’ll be able to order any of them at our webshop!
The first product that will be available in the Culture Tourist Web Shop are Amsterdam Colouring Postcards inspired by events that will be organised during this spring in the city.
But, the story first…
Well, let’s start with the story behind these postcards first.
To me, it’s always hard to find unique, good quality souvenirs with an interesting story behind them when I’m travelling. I’m always looking for something with a beautiful and unique design. But also for something showing the city’s soul. Something that’s representing it. Or something that will remind me of it.
That’s why I’ve designed and drew these Colouring Postcards. My focus was on a clean design (so they could be coloured and adjusted to your own taste). But they are also informative, and you’re going to learn about cultural events happening in Amsterdam during this spring.
All the small business involved in their production are based in the Netherlands (from the art supply shop, printing company to the producer). Well, we’re promoting cultural tourism as always!
They have been printed on a special paper that is solid enough for postcards. But that can also be coloured with crayons. Once you get your postcards you can customise them, choose the colours you like the most and create your own perfect postcards inspired by a spring in Amsterdam.
You don’t have to send them at all in the end. You can frame them and keep them for yourself (at least that’s what I did).
Each set contains 5 postcards (+ the blank one you can decorate with your favourite spring event or motif from Amsterdam). They are all showing different events, its dates and a drawing. There are:
- Tulip Festival, 31 March – 30 April 2018
- National Museum Week, 7 – 15 April 2018
- National Mill Day, 12 and 13 May 2018
- Days of Architecture, 15 – 17 June 2018
- Open Gardens Day, 15 – 17 June 2018
