I have always adored this quote by Lord Byron -- in fact, it's the very first item I put on my website when I was designing it a few years ago! -- and decided it was high time to design a postcard that featured it. The quote is at the bottom in white script on black, below a photo I took of three wonderful vintage stamps from the 1974 "Letters Mingle Souls" issue.

The text reads:
Letter writing is the only device for combining solitude with good company.
-Lord Byron

This listing is for 5 professionally printed postcards of this design (though combination packs with my other postcard designs are also availalbe); each postcard is 4.25 x 5.5 inches. They are printed with a high gloss coating on the image side, and a light gloss on the writing side, but it is still matte enough to be very friendly to fountain pen ink.

Sorry, does not include the fountain pen or a stamp! The last photo of the current U.S. postcard rate stamp is to show how nicely the stamp fits inside the design frame. :-)

This design is also available as a notecard:

...pssst... if you like the stamps shown on this postcard, I also sell the stamps, vintage and unused:

**If you want more than the quantities listed as available, just let me know! I may have more that I haven't listed yet.**
