The Delectable Duchy
I simply love this postcard. It meets a lot of requirements to achieve 'fave' status. First it is a map. Second it features little works of art and not photos (which can be so boring). Thirdly it is whimsical in nature and fourthly it is a watercolour - my favourite form of art. Last but not least it has lots of interesting names on it. I have always been fascinated by place names and Cornwall seems to have a number of them - from Jamaica Inn to Mullion Cove. It is printed by J. Salmon LTD of Sevenoaks, Kent. Did you know there is a Salmon Postcard Study Group for those who are enthusiasts of this particular printer.
