Charming & Inspirational Note Cards for a Variety of Occasions

five out of five stars

(Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review through Blogging for Books.)

If I had to describe this set of note cards in one word, it would be “lovely.”

Each 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card features a quote from a historical figure – from Harper Lee and Oscar Wilde to Antoine de Saint-Exupery and Ovid – accompanied by a fun and whimsical illustration by Patel. The cards are suitable for a variety of occasions, though many skew towards messages of encouragement, inspiration, and empowerment. (If the quotes aren’t inspiration enough, consider this: Patel is a self-taught artist!) Each card is blank inside, leaving you plenty of room to write, sketch, and scribble, making it your own.

The set comes with simple white envelopes (natch) and is housed in an elegant box, which you can reuse for jewelry, ephemera, or more cards!

Patel has also published similarly themed journals and diaries/day planners, both of which you can now find on my ever-expanding wishlist.
