Postcards are retro, modern – but still in fashion. Take a look at the commercial artistic postcards  by the Austrian artist Egon Schiele from 1910.  Actually, these cards have never been out of fashion. Who had ever thought that such tiny pieces of paper would be auctioned for more than 2,000 € each in 2009?
