Design Porn: Penguin Postcards


To me, postcards are the most perfect things. They're tiny, but you can put so much into them. And the artwork is the same - choosing the perfect card for your recipient takes time, but you know how much they'll smile when the little piece of card falls through their door. There's something spontaneous about them and there are very few that wouldn't lend themselves to a scrapbook or being framed and put on a shelf. I have a precious collection of antique postcards and heck, I love them so much that I've kicked off a new writing project that's dedicated to them.

But Penguin have to go one better, don't they? Just look at that glorious collection of postcards. There's 100 that all come in one fabulous box. And all for £14.98! Wow! Now, they don't go on sale until November 5th (which you really should be able to remember) but I know these are going to sell out very quickly so thought you deserved some warning. Domestic Slut Alex found these last week and honestly I don't think I've ever been more excited about the release of stationery.

Penguin and postcards: Everything wonderful in the world all in one pretty box.

  8. Noooooo - I've just bought them for full price :( Booooo.

    Ah well, I'll just bask in the fact that mine are more expensive than yours and therefore better. Probably.

  10. Really annoyed with Penguin. They've just emailed me to say that despite my ordering on 5th November, my parcel isn't due to be processed until 14th December! How useless!

  11. How strange! I got some for my birthday but they were from Amazon. How annoying after pre-ordering!
