Looking through old cards in a bric-a-brac shop, Guy Atkins came upon a picture postcard with the arresting message on the back: 'Come home at once, all is forgiven.' It launched him as a postcard collector. Here he presents facsimiles of his best and most intriguing items from the Edwardian heyday of the postcard as a means of communication - when messages could be quite intimate and even encrypted.
