Literary Postcards by Edward Carey –

Award-winning author and illustrator Edward Carey’s daily drawings have been an unexpected source of joy for all of us at ASF during a difficult year and a half. These illustrations—some whimsical, some terrifying—are playful, incisive, and magnetic, much like our favorite short fiction. We liked them so much we commissioned Carey to create a set of limited-edition literary postcards, which are now on sale for $25.
