Book Description 
  
 
  
 
  
The celebrated photographer and social commentator Martin Parr follows up the Boring Postcards series with a new installment of his bizarre postcard collection. Produced in the countries of the Southern Europe -during the 1970s, these cards show shamelessly idealized photographs of romantic lovers-frolicking in the hills, holding hands in the sunset, staring dreamily into each others eyes; and of perfect families-greeting Dad home from work, in the kitchen baking a cake with Mom, singing together at the piano. . . . Originating as domestic "icons" rooted in Catholic religious tradition, these images show the Mediterranean equivalents of the Brady Bunch. Both a revealing social-historical document and hilariously funny, they will appeal to all connoisseurs of photographic kitsch.
