Illustration Postcards

These two Flower fairies came flying in through my door together on the same day, a couple of weeks ago - but from two different countries. One from the Netherlands, the other from the U.K. (Geranium and Narcissus - by Cecily M. Barker, 1895-1973)

Three recent Postcrossing cards:

1. A blue dragon from Japan (a so-called Gotochi-card). 

"Gotochi cards are designed and released by the Japanese Postal System. --- Gotochi cards have a couple of unique features that make them special. First of all, they are not perfect rectangles, but in fact take on the shape of their picture. Also, each card not only has a cartoon picture on it, but also the name of the place that is depicted in the image." (Source: Postcrossing blog) (not sure if the link works for non-members)

2. A different take on the Alice in Wonderland theme (role reversal between Alice and the Chesire cat). From France.

3. From Finland. An illustration by Ilona Partanen.


  1. all of them are really beautiful, and so different, except of course the two fairies. they are so sweet.. I like the card that takes the shape of the design.

  2. Interesting. Yes, I could read the Postcrossing Blog. I shall explore that further given the fact that you and CJ are both postcrossers.
