Paper Jewels is the story of postcards during the Raj spanning India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Burma. Postcards were the Instagram of their time, depicting the subcontinent, its people, places and preoccupations to the world. The first color and global visual communications medium to represent India between 1892 and 1947, the talk weaves together postcard artists, photographers, and publishers that define the rich history of the postcard in the subcontinent.
