Birthplaces of The Great Ideas Post Cards


Every idea is born somewhere. This set of 20 detachable postcards pursues this less familiar and less sought after, yet the equally as intriguing notion by exploring the particular places that gave rise to meaningful ideas that have helped to shape the world. For instance, Virginia Woolf thought of a ‘room of her own’ in her study in Sussex (which had a window overlooking a delightful rose garden), while Edward Hopper discovered modern loneliness in a particular American diner. No matter how big an idea is, this set gives us perspective on the often humble place it was born. This measures approximately 6 x 4 inches.
