Postcard Love: Postcards from Puffin

27 Comments

I ordered the Postcards from Puffin set from the Book Depository and I was so excited when it finally arrived almost four weeks after my purchase. So many pretty postcards inside, I knew I had to take pictures and share them with the rest of you. Most of the postcards pictured here are the ones that I want to keep for myself.

Box looks nice, doesn’t it? This is what it looks like when you open it:

It includes three Roald Dahl postcards:

Descriptions of the cover designs:

This is what the back of the postcards look like, “nuffin like a Puffin!”

I’ve seen these 2008 Puffin classics in bookstores and I like the designs in this edition:

Little Women has two postcards, I think it’s the only one that had a duplicate:

Two old school Narnia postcards and The Hobbit:

Retro classics:

Other titles I liked (I was surprised that Diary of A Wimpy Kid got included in this set):

All sorts of cute puffins:

Other postcards that I want to keep even though I haven’t read these books:

So, so, so. Don’t you think this is a lovely set of postcards? If you’re planning to buy Postcards from Puffin, I hope I managed to convince you with these pictures. Now I just need to decide what postcards I’m willing to part with so I can send them to book blogging buddies. Sigh, so hard to choose.

  1. These are SO awesome. I kind of want to buy more postcards too!

  2. So pretty! Almost enough to convince me to get my own set (but not sure if I will yet :D).

  3. Those are really nice! I’m tempted to buy a set too.:)

    • Celina, it’s a great set for book lovers. I’m thinking of what I can do with the ones that I’m keeping – cover them in plastic and stick them in front of my closet or have some of them framed?

  4. I LOVE those, Chachic–thanks so much for sharing those photos! And now I must have it. Want want want. 🙂 Nuffin like a Puffin indeed. 🙂

    • Wendy, I was so excited to take pictures and share them with you. I knew you were curious about what was included. Go and order! 🙂 And I’ll send you one of these, don’t worry. 🙂

  5. AHHHH I CAN’T WAIT TO GET MINE IN THE MAIL

  6. …You haven’t read Heidi?! I just don’t even know how to handle that. It’ll rip your heart out! At any rate, I knew there would be cute puffins! Yay! So many good covers as well. I love that there’s a mix of the modern and older covers.

    • Heidi, ooh were you named after that book? And yes, I haven’t read it. 😦 I knew you’d like the cute puffins in this set, I had to take a picture of those postcards to show you. 😛

      • I wasn’t named after the book, my parents just liked the name. =)
        Thanks for taking the Puffin pics!! My fav is the one with the puffin and the owl under the umbrella (of course, I also love owls).

  7. So beautiful! I collect postcards, so this would be absolutely perfect for me 😀

  8. Oh my gosh, these are great! I really want the Roald Dahl ones! I love The Hobbit too. It would be hard to part with any of them.

    • I love how The Hobbit postcard shows a well-worn, well-loved cover. I really couldn’t part with most of the cards pictured here. 😛 But I think I can manage to part with some of the ones that I’m not familiar with.

  9. You can’t send these to anyone! They are too beautiful! I’m certain that I need to get this set and then hoard it away like Gollum. I don’t think I could part with even the ones from books I’ve never read or the random puffin picture ones. You are a stronger woman than I am:)

    • So you don’t want me to send you one, Flann? 😛 Yes, I want to hoard them exactly like Gollum. My precious postcards! Maybe I should have ordered the Penguin set because it would be easier for me to use those. I still haven’t gone through the set to decide what I could part with! Ah, need to do that soon.

  10. Oh Chachic, I covet these so much!
    I keep seeing them in Waterstone’s and pining after them 🙂
    I love the Roald Dahl ones and I love that Little Woman has two!

    I agree with Flann, don’t send them to anyone! Haha. 🙂

    • *Women

      See? In my excitement, I misspelt the title my favourite book!

    • Jo, it’s available in your local bookstore? You should totally get it then. I ordered mine from the Book Depository and had to wait a couple of weeks for it to arrive. You should add the Puffin postcards to your Penguin collection. 😛

      Haha maybe I shouldn’t have promised to send these postcards before they arrived? Maybe I’ll send just one batch of postcards and then I’ll keep the rest to myself.

  14. Thank you so much for this post. I was considering buying them on Amazon, but there aren’t any pictures of what you get. This post was excellent, and now I can’t wait to get them! 🙂
