Looking for a special something to send to a loved one? This beautiful postcard is for us book lovers. It features a whole city built entirely from books that look like skyscrapers. It’s the place I want to live in! Aptly titled “Wordsworth City,” this card celebrates writers like Joyce, Hamsun, Whitman, Rimbaud, Longfellow, Homer, Rushdie, Ginsberg, Twain, Hegel, Goethe, Plath, Dostoyevsky, Rilke, and Lagerlöff, making it perfect to send out to a book-loving friend as a new year card, birthday card, or to commemorate a special occasion. It’s a unique way to express your best wishes. This was originally on the cover of The Writer magazine.
The card has a hilarious little story written on the back which is printed in a very light gray colour so that you can write over it without any problems. The story, which makes fun of popular names in world literature, goes as follows:
