The Wild Cards

A 100 Postcard Box Set

Robert MacFarlane, Jackie Morris


Discover and share the wonders of the wild world as seen in The Lost Words and The Lost Spells

This collection of 100 postcards features artwork and words from two beloved modern classics, in which Jackie Morris and Robert Macfarlane celebrate the creatures, trees and plants of nearby nature, from Acorn to Wren, by way of Curlew and Kingfisher, Silver Birch and Snow Hare, Goldfinch and Gorse.

The front of each card bears one of Morris’s Greenaway Medal-winning paintings; on the reverse, you will find an accompanying quotation from one of the spell-poems in the Lost books, as well as an identification of the species shown on the card. The remaining space is left blank for you to fill in these wild cards with pen, pencil or paint – and then send them out into the world to make and renew connections.
