Even in this golden age of digital travel photography, I still love old fashioned travel postcards. I’m not embarrassed in the least to admit that I still return home from most trips with a stack of kitschy cards.

The very talented London-based, Italian artist Caterina Rossato has elevated the humble travel postcard to high art with her remarkable 3D collages. Layering cut-outs from multiple postcards, she creates unique sculptural landscapes.

Rossato is currently the artist in residence at the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Massa in Venice. You can see more of her imaginative work on her website.
