Really fun, high quality set. The paper stock is sturdy, I had no issues with removing these from the glue binding, and the nice matte address side of the card accepts virtually all ink types. Postcrossers and architect buffs alike should be pleased to receive any card from the set. Additionally, the quirky illustrations would also be an excellent way to introduce an older child to the world of design and architecture. Very pleased with the purchase!

and I would have loved to have used these cardsReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on February 3, 2015
I think this is a really fabulous concept, and I would have loved to have used these cards, but sadly every card has a black printer's line across the centre - it's in exactly the same place on each card, and I'm surprised that the publisher didn't catch it.
