Based on the New York Times bestseller Footnotes from the World's Greatest Bookstores, Bob Eckstein brings his heart-tugging illustrations to a postcard set. Here are 100 postcards that celebrate the pillar of every community--the independent bookstore--with 50 total illustrations, including seven never-before-seen designs--to both send and save.

Celebrating beloved bookshops and the people who work in them, each of these postcards includes a painterly illustration with the name and dates of operation and room for writing on the back, offering a charming dedication to the world of books.
