All cards are black-and-white, so one can color them as they like. That’s, actually, the main idea behind the postcards – to add color the history of Belarus together!

The postcards will be sold in the biggest book shop in Minsk, Hrodna, Maladzyechna, Polatsk and Babruysk, or can be ordered online.

Some years ago Budzma released a cartoon “Let’s Be Belarusians!”, that became the basis for the collection of postcards.

The cartoon got over 150,000 views on Youtube and was awarded many prizes.
