Excellent quality and assortment here.

I was rather disappointed not to find any postcards featuring book covers of Enid Blyton's books (was she not ever published by Puffin?).

These are nice, sturdy postcards with good quality printing, but not what I'd expected.

I would say that at least half of them are for non-fiction titles as opposed to children's classics. My dad has been a children's librarian all of my life, and brought home a lot of English books that weren't common in the US but quite a few of the fiction covers in this collection were unfamiliar and the art style on a lot of those (and on some of the more well-known classics) wasn't to my taste (sketchy rather than polished).

There's a lot to love in the set, it was just a bit disappointing to go through them and find so little of what I'd expected.

I remember reading Puffin books as a young child, and some of my most cherished childhood memories are of accompanying my mother to our neighborhood used bookstore to pick out books, many of which were Puffin classics. When I saw this product I was looking forward to seeing what book covers made the cut in being selected as the 100. I wasn't disappointed - there are many familiar titles alongside more obscure and unfamiliar names, but all the covers are interesting with unique and beautiful artwork.

Some of familiar titles found on these lovely postcards are The Very Hungry Caterpillar with the iconic caterpillar illustration by Eric Carle, The Snowman, The Wizard of Oz, Little Women, The Hobbit, Roald Dahl's The BFG, Stig of the Dump by Clive King (a childhood favorite of mine), C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Norton Juster's The Phantom Tollbooth, Charlotte's Web, and many more.

Some of the obscure or vintage titles are covers of books with titles like "The Puffin Book of Lettering", "Better Handwriting", "A History of the Countryside", ""Wild Animals in Britain", etc. I was rather disappointed not to find any postcards featuring book covers of Enid Blyton's books (was she not ever published by Puffin?). The covers are a wonderful balance between vintage covers (such as Paddington At Large) and more contemporary ones (like Diary of a Wimpy Kid).

I had a pleasant afternoon browsing through these delightful and eclectic mix of postcards, and had a fond time reminiscing about childhood days spent absorbed in reading. Fans and collectors will probably want to keep a set for themselves and another to send to friends and family, especially those who love books and reading!

These cards ended up being so much better than I anticipated. Every single card is unique and has a different, colorful book cover. I loved the range of books as well (they included picture books, children's classics and a few adult books). I'm tempted to buy another set.

I absolutely love these postcards. They arrived quickly, come in a sturdy box, and are of high quality. I will use these as decor in my classroom, and send them to family and friends.

Going through this box of postcards for the first time took my breath away. The variety of artwork and photography would be a bargain at twice the price. I'm not familiar with many of the English titles but that doesn't lessen the beauty of the artwork. The cover postcard for Heidi is not one I'll be mailing to anyone; it's beautiful and I want it for myself. I like the English illustrations for many of our American titles.
Postcards from Puffin is a much better collection that the Penguin postcard collection. That collection is, quite frankly, very dull and boring; I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, but I guess that belongs in a different review.

Excellent collection. Some titles are repeated but the covers are different. This collection will be used as reading inspiration and the cards mailed around the world with the help of Postcrossing.com Very appropriate for young and old alike.
The only issue is the red paper used to line the interior of the box has discolored the edges of the cards. Since we plan to actually send them, this isn't problematic for us. However, a collector may be disappointed
