About the artwork
In the 1930s Finland started to realize what the tourists really wanted. They wanted something truly exotic: They wanted peace and nature.
One of the people who actively contributed to spreading the message about Finland being a nature paradise was the Swedish graphic designer and artist Ingrid Högström-Bade (1908–1989).
This poster were originally commissioned by the tourism promotion organisation Suomen-Matkat / Finlandsresor in co-operation with the Finnish State Railways. It was printed at the famous Finnish printing house Tilgmann. There’s actually also a boy version of this poster in the same style and color, but we’ve never managed to find an original. The hunt continues!
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.
