Pigeon Post

Pyramus and Thisbe — Greek / Babylonian

The Butterfly Lovers — Chinese

Hinemoa & Tutanekai — Aotearoa (New Zealand)

A Midsummer Night’s Dream — English / Greek

Radha & Krishna — Hindu

Pygmalion & Galatea — Greek


Love these. Inspired by legendary stories of eternal love, Keith-yin Sun and Judi Chan of Pigeon Post created this beautiful set of postcards featuring classical lovers from all over the world. The set consists of six cards in the shape of a stamp, a graceful nod towards the tradition of sending love letters through the mail. So lovely — and now I really want to read (or reread) the tales that inspired them! Via grain edit.

so beautiful and absolutely romantic in a universal and deeper way than most valentine's tend to be
