About the artwork
Take a deep breath.
Because now we have reached the very essence of these cheerful greetings from Finland.
We’re talking about this masterpiece by Helge Mether-Borgström’s, where a ship sails into the land of thousand lakes from the west.
So simple, but oh how mesmerizing.
Mether-Borgström isn’t any old graphic designer. It was he who 1954 created Marimekko’s logo.
But looking at this iconic poster we really have just one question: Who was the virtuoso who came up with the slogan Finlande – Pays de la Romance?
Give this wordsmith a retroactive raise!
And a spot on the TV-show Mad Men.
About the product
They say that the forest is the green gold of Finland. That’s why we have wooden versions of our postcards. They are, naturally enough, printed in Finland – on Finnish birch plywood.
Best of all: You can use them as ordinary postcards! Thickness: 3 mm.
These are prints that stand the test of time. Every product is unique – it’s printed on real wood! So please note: variations in colour and structure might appear.
