it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction

This was a well written and feel good fun story of a man who wanted to test the mail system. He ended up being known for this hobby and being one of the "fathers" of mail. The story was fun to read and I found it very interesting and fast paced. The images thorugh the book were beautifully copied added and great detail could be seen.

If you like reading about "oddities" and want a fast paced and interesting non-fiction to read, I highly suggest.

I will say I was drawn to this at first because I collect postcards from around the world, but I feel like anyone would enjoy reading this. It truly is about a man following his hobby and having fun.
