Framed


For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Use a Frame", I´ve framed the German author Thomas Mann (1875-1955) who emigrated to Switzerland in 1933 and to the U. S. in 1939 and who got the Nobel prize for literature in 1929 (but for his "Buddenbrooks" he had written in 1901!) I´ll visit his hometown Lübeck next week and will visit the famous Buddenbrooks House of course ... If you haven´t read anything from Mann or did it only in your school days long ago, I´d like to encourage you to do so again because his elegant style is so full of wit and surprises = sentences you wouldn´t expect from an author of his decades - in my opinion he really liked to step out of his frame from time to time and to think outside the box!

Great postcard! Be sure to buy some Niederegger marzipan when you're in Lubeck. It's my personal favorite. :)
