check out these greeting cards! (no, seriously)

I’ve always been pretty skeptical of conventional greeting/thank you/etc. cards, in general. But I ran across a guy selling some really excellent cards of various sorts at a farmer’s market a couple of weeks ago, and couldn’t help but buy a few.  If you can imagine a Romanophile Edward Gorey and some of his friends going into the card-design business…that’s more or less the idea.

Anyway, today I received a thank-you note from the first recipient of one of the cards I bought. She wanted to know more about the creators, which led me to their website:

The website was clearly designed by the same people who designed the cards. It’s worth checking out even if you haven’t (or hadn’t previously) the slightest interest in greeting cards.

    Hmm. My interest in greeting cards has been somewhat unslighted.
