Gargoyles: 30 Postcards

What's not to love about a book of purposely ugly characters.  Each card is 4 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches and is printed on a good quality card stock.  The front is glossy and the back is matte.  All photos are by Dr. Janetta Rebold Benton, a Professor of Art History at Pace University in New York. 

These old world gargoyles are found on cathedrals and other significant buildings in Great Britain and Europe.  Your friends and family will love receiving these quirky characters in the mail.
