Plage la Grande Salinette is a popular seaside resort with a view on the bay of Saint-Briac-sur-Mer in France. The owners of publishing house More Publishers invited David Horvitz to make a postcard for a next edition. He came up with the idea to glue beach sand of that resort on a card. Hence the above postcard “Untitled (la Grande Salinette)” that was produced on the spot.
The back of the card mentions ‘From a distance…” that refers to a series of postcards that the publishers Tim Ryckaert and Amélie Laplanche have started to issue in 2023. Every time when they stay in Saint-Briac-sur-Mer they may launch a new edition produced ad hoc. Hence the name of this series that alludes with the fact that a plan has to be made and carried out ‘From a distance…’ while the publishing house is located in Belgium.
