Card sent by Heleen (the Netherlands).
Leesvoer (='Readings', I think), by Willy Belinfante. This painting fits in my album of Reading Women! And besides this, thanks to the postcard I discovered she has a lot of works showing readers (for instance).
As I wrote last Sunday, Saint George's Day in Catalonia is something like Valentine's Day. Better than Valentine's Day, because not only lovers swap books and roses. Also the friends, the relatives, even the co-workers do. Today is the right day to wander around the stalls of books in the street. Almost impossible not to buy at least one book. This beautiful tradition is based on a legend: there was a village terrorized by a fierce dragon, a pretty princess in danger... Well, you can imagine the final, can't you?
The envelope I received yesterday is also decorated in a literary way. Even the bear on the stamps is reading a letter!
