Toronto in postcard splendour

This postcard is one of the most original and stylised paper media pieces I have ever come across. From the impact of the bold banner… Toronto.. to the concertina fold out of important landmarks of the city, this piece doesn’t know if it wants to be a letter, envelope, postcard or book. The coloured and brushed palettes of the illustrations are particularly endearing. How much do I love it? A lot. Some things you just cannot walk past when rummaging through the €1 bin on the streets of Madrid. If you were the lucky recipient, Mrs Gustance of Kent, England, wouldn’t you be booking that first flight to Toronto?
