Guy Schraenen notes: “Why these 15 artists: because these artists are painters or poets, for whom I organised exhibitions or poetical meetings. I mean that the present edition of post-cards would allow the diffusion of known and less known works and would also give the possibility to illustrate some aspects of actual art. In this first serial, I want to present 15 personalities which are true creators, and who for this edition have been creating works, so that these cards are not reproductions but original post-cards”
