Postcards from Penguin

Thanks so much to everyone that commented yesterday on my little gallery wall, I'm so glad you liked it! There were some questions about the Great Gatsby cover so I thought I'd share my secret. Earlier this year, Penguin came out with a set of 100 postcards featuring their iconic covers. They were first released in the UK and I was too impatient to wait for them to come stateside so I ordered a set off of ebay. The Gatsby cover is one of the postcards from the set, not an actual cover (although I'd love to find a vintage copy!) There are so many great classics in this set, it'd make the perfect gift for any bibliophile!

P.S if you'd like to see more of the covers, we made a photo wall with a bunch in our last apartment.


Thanks for stopping by, I love reading your comments!
