I am a book nerd and Oscar Wilde is one of my favorite authors. I love his plays, his poems, his novel, his wit. And I love reading about his interesting, funny, and devastatingly sad life.
So when I saw these gorgeous Victorian-inspired cards by Potter Style featuring some of Wilde’s best quips, I knew I had to have them. Oscar Wilde on stationery…my two loves collide!
No one has ever said it quite like Oscar and I love being able to share his quips with my pen pals. These note cards are available from various chain bookstores and others online, including here at Amazon.
If there are any other Wilde fans out there, I wanted to share a book I recently picked up by Thomas Wright called Built of Books: How reading defined the life of Oscar Wilde. It explores Wilde’s life through the books he owned, read and lost after his incarceration. It’s such an interesting idea to recreate a person’s lived experience by the books he or she has read. I wonder what future writers would think of me given the stuff on my shelves!
P.S. If you missed it, check out this post that highlights my recent visit to Oscar Wilde’s kiss-covered grave site at Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.
