On the cards

I’ve got a bit of an Amazon addiction at the best of times. Now the site has come up trumps again, with what has to be the perfect present for anyone born in the Seventies or Eighties…

Penguin are publishing a boxed set of 100 postcards, each printed with the cover of one of their iconic Ladybird books. Think titles such as ‘The Party’, ‘Peter & Jane’, ‘The Zoo’ and my favourite, ‘Things to Make’.

Whether you want to frame them, make a border for a child’s room with them, use them as birthday cards, help Royal Mail survive by posting them, or simply give them as a gift (if you can bear to part with them!), I reckon it’d be rude not to buy some.

The postcards are published next Thursday (6th October) rrp £14.99; but you can pre-order them now at www.amazon.co.uk for £10.55. Be quick – I reckon they’ll be a sell-out!
