I like the solution chosen by Australia Post to make the postmark visible: a disk of matte (or just white-ish?) surface, incorporated on the postcard image design.

You nailed it

You are very forgiving, I am not taken by them myself.
It leaves a taste of "Philatelic contrivance" to me
in that the card was specifically designed for Maxicard collectors.
Maybe that's just the cynic in me?

As far as I know, kneeling and putting hands together in prayer is a Christian ritual, not a Jewish one. Poor show, Sir Joshua. At least the card is a proper creation by a collector or a dealer, rather than those post office creations with sea-life.

That was quite an eye opener!
had me Googling the differences, and was quite a surprise.
Samuel was venerated by both, so I guess he (Reynolds) was interpreting
what he had been used to, brought up with.

Hello.
My interest in maximophilia is limited to stamps issued from my city.
I have some cards that I would exchange for stamps.
Regards.

You, too, can create some maxicards about things that interest you.
