Sorry, for the corny headline but earlier this week a postcard came that was unique for my collection:
The house by Frank Lloyd Wright looks great – not that the postcard does it justice. I love Wright’s work. But I was most excited by what’s on the flip side:
“Studio Entrance, 1898
Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio
Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect
Wright designed the two male sculptures on the roof called The Boulders and the plaster panels of storks in relief that guard the windows of the loggia entrance porch to the Studio. These designs were sculpted for the building by Richard Bock.”
“Full day of touring house of FLR and his contemporaries. 400 volunteers to show 12 houses! Crazy but very cool!”
It is my first postcard from Oak Park, Illinois. But I was most excited by the stamp. I’ve never seen a stamp before that had an optical code like this before. Is that new? Really cool anyway.
