SHE: 100 Literary Art Postcards
100 artful ways to share the brilliant words of visionary women writers. A keepsake boxed set to collect, share or frame.
SHE is a beautiful boxed set of 100 fine art postcards featuring illustrations inspired by women writers. From Sappho’s ancient call-to-action, "become a voice," to Virginia Woolf’s call for intellectual freedom in A Room of One's Own, these foundational writers had a remarkable impact on future generations, and made us question, think, rebel, and laugh.
Our illustrations are a visual ode to these visionary women, and our way of drawing attention to the immense contribution women writers have made.
The collection includes two each of 50 postcards--one to keep, one to send. They are printed on art print quality lush paper and encased in a keepsake box that will look beautiful on your shelf or coffee table.
Whether you cherish them as a collection, surprise loved ones with snail mail, frame them as art, use them as gift cards, or tack them to your inspiration board, we hope that you and your friends will enjoy the artwork for years to come.
NOTE: The SHE boxed set is the only Obvious State product that was ever made overseas (no US printer could make it). We have about 60 units left from this run, and we will not be making more. We love this boxed set and our responsible partner, but have decided not to make anything outside of the US due to environmental concerns.
