New set up in my shop — a wonderful 9-postcard set of autumn imagery from Boldino. The small village of Boldino is known to every Russian person as Alexander Pushkin’s haven where he spent his autumns and wrote his timeless love poetry.

A new awesome postcard set available in my shop! 25 full color postcards of herbs and medicinal plants from 1976. Herbs is probably my favourite type of plant, they’re small and humble, but they hold such a power within if you just care to look closer.

What I also love about this set is that every photograph here is a small masterpiece. Film photos just have this effect.
