collecting penguins

my dear friends just gave me a collection of iconic penguin book cover postcards as a thank you gift. I am giddy.

aren't they so pretty? I love each one intimately but realize I simply cannot display them all. at least, not at once. I am wondering if there is a non-college way to use postcards in home decor?

as a clock:

amid the books on the shelves:

not postcards, but I like the idea:

somewhat hidden:

in enormous frames:

  1. I like all of these ideas. Especially the clock. Brian has some postcards that he loves, that we have framed and put on one of our bookshelves among the books. It's a little more subtle, but I also think the frames help make them less college-y.
