Maybe we're being nostalgic, but the 1950s and 60s did seem like a wondrous time, particularly in the world of visual design. British artist Jenny Bowers pays tribute to the era with 20 brightly colored subjects on these petite notecards, including a birthday cake, a stack of books, seashells, a sheet of stamps, a coffee pot, presents, some jolly balloons, and four very cheerful rotary phones. The boxed set includes envelopes with boldly striped borders.
