Vintage rhino postcard

vintage rhino postcard by Current

I sent this lovely little vintage Current postcard to Lela in Estonia recently. (She blogged about it, too, and took more photos as well.) She and I both have a fondness for animals and fanciful illustration styles. I am a big fan of these vintage Current postcards - they are very sturdy, and take fountain pen ink beautifully. I love the colors in this, too, with the toucan making a splash of brightness against the purplish-grey of the friendly-looking rhino.

  2. I like the illustration, too. :) Vibrant color is always a good thing in my book.

  3. Makes me nostalgic for Current stationery. Are they still around? If so, I just might have to start ordering their stationery again.

  4. JP, I think they are still around - but I'm a sucker for the nostalgic old stuff.
