Filed under: News 

In this age of emails, cell phones, and Facebook it seems that sending postcards is becoming a lost art.

This is not the case for 26-year-old Chris Barker. At the start of the new year, Barker bought 200 vintage postcards and decided to start sending one every day for the whole year. He started out mailing them to friends and family, but now anyone can request one .

Barker’s Instagram feed, called Postbark, is now filled with colorful photos of the mail he has sent out every day to people all across the world.

Here are some of our favorite postcard images from his feed so far. — Amy Oberbroeckling
