Rahva Raamat - Sajandijagu armastust - Century of Love

Rahva Raamat is a book business with long-standing traditions, which has been in operation in Estonia since the year 1912. Today Rahva Raamat has ten bookstores in seven different cities. This card is from Pärnu Rahva Raamat bookstore.  

When I visited Tallinn last summer I  stopped at one special antique book store (Raamatukoi, Harju 1.) in the Old Town. In this shop there are the old books neatly arranged and easy to search. I  bought only some books and a big stack of art postcards :) 

This is my entry for Maria's "Postcards for the Weekend" on her "Connections to the World-blog" and the theme for this week is "Books/reading/authors"

  1. Great collection postcards for this weeks theme...I really like the tree postcard with words although I can't read them! ツ

  2. Your postcrads combine two favourite themes of mine: books and drawing. I love the first postcard, showing sketches in front of the book.
    And the 'branch'-like colouring pencils in the other card :-) And the illustrations I like, of course, too!
    Thank you for sharing!

  3. Very nice cards! Although I would say the postcard with the stacked books & the globe on top is my favorite -- it represents my thoughts about books allowing me to travel through it's pages without leaving the comfort of my home. Thanks for joining & linking up. Until next week !

  4. Like Maria, that Elena Schweitzer card is my favourite.

  5. I'm with the others, I love the Elena Schweitzer card best, but all the cards are interesting! Thanks for posting them

  6. That tree full of fairy tales is really beautiful!
