In this episode of Cool Stuff in the Mail, we have Hugs and Misses: 30 Postcards of Awkward Romance. Hey, we’ve all been there – the bad blind date, the miscommunication, the bumbling idiot. Artist Wilhelm Staehle makes whimsical cutouts that bring these priceless moments to life, collected here as a series of postcards. As you can see, the animals are my favorite, because who doesn’t love personification? Check out more of the artist’s work here.
