Talleen Hacikyan

Postcards is a collection of eight postcard stories--extremely short literary works, no more than a few hundred words.

Setting plays a key role in determining the emotional tone in each of these fictional stories. Quirky situations and surreal atmosphere pervade these tales, written and illustrated by Talleen Hacikyan.

Postcards is a house-shaped accordion book. It is available in a deluxe clothbound limited edition of fifteen, printed on archival paper. It also comes in a board bound version with a cloth spine in a limited edition of fifty.

Deluxe clothbound edition 350 $
Board bound edition 30 $
