Marie is our lovely postmistress for Postcard Friendship Friday.
Marie posted a beautiful card of little girl who is dog tired.
(You can find out a where "dog tired" came from by visiting Marie.)
How about Unicorn Tired?!!
This postcard is from a postcard book of 30 "elegant full-color postcards of the exquisite and mysterious Unicorn to mail, share, and cherish" published by Running Press Book Publishers and the artist, Michael Green.
From the back of the postcard:
"UNICORN AND DREAMING MAIDEN IN LANDSCAPE"
Oil on treated paper. 31.8 by 49.2 cm.
"The Unicorn has a singular virtue, that he can penetrate our dreams, and there address us. Therefore take heed, O Dreamer, when the Unicorn appears to thee. Though his speech is unlike any tongue of Man, yet shalt thou comprehend!"
"From the book UNICORNIS: On the History and Truth of the Unicorn, published by Running Press. Copyright 1983, 1986 by Michael Green. All rights reserved."
A little something from the front of the postcard book:
"The pictures reproduced on these postcards are drawn from the fabulous Unicornis Manuscript - an extraordinary document which, according to legend, languished for more than four centuries in the care of the Collegium Gnosticium, a mysterious Gnostic brotherhood. This curious work, a strange amalgam of Medieval and early Renaissance thought, was only recently brought to public attention through the ministrations of Michael Green, who assisted its translation and publication as De Historia et Veritate Unicornis (On the History and Truth of the Unicorn)."
