Parrworld: Objects and Postcards is a two-volume boxed set by British photographer Martin Parr. Objects reveals many of the items in Parr's collections of photographic and themed objects, many of which are unabashedly kitsch or have obvious pop culture references. Parr amassed the collections over a twenty-five year period while collecting over 20,000 postcards from all over. This volume lays them out in album format, presenting a range of postcards depicting local events like car crashes and murders to the most mundane highways. This set is a must for serious Parr-ophiles.
