A picture book to be shared and savored by both children and adults: a journey into a wondrous world coloured by the stories we might choose to tell about it.
A full moon after a wasp attack, poppies from a train, panning for gold in the River Cesecito, a bountiful pumpkin harvest…. Postcards for Mia is a joyful collection of hand-drawn and -painted postcards sent by anthropologist Michael Taussig to his granddaughter, Mia. From airports in New York to cemeteries in Colombia, confrontations with wild boars to conversations with well-dressed koalas, Postcards for Mia is a picture book to be shared and savoured by both children and adults, a journey into a wondrous world coloured by the stories we might choose to tell about it.
