Regular readers will remember our post a few months ago about a book of postcards called Lost Heroes by illustrator Ian Stevenson, published by Concrete Hermit. Now the independent publisher has released three new postcard size volumes by three more illustrators: Sweaty Goolabs by Jon Burgerman, Monstruos & Maestros by Motomichi and Von by Hellovon (covers shown above).

It seems that postcards are enjoying a period of popularity with today’s graphic designers and illustrators. Earlier today design studio FL@33 announced their call for entries to a new book they’re putting together collecting their favourite postcards and postcard related projects created since 2000.
