Birthplaces of the Great Ideas Postcards


This postcard pack from The School of Life feature 20 places in which the world’s big ideas were hatched. For example, Marcel Proust thought up his theories on travel in the Gare du Nord in Paris and Edward Hopper discovered modern loneliness in a particular American diner.

Instead of providing geographical information about places around the world, Places/Ideas pursues the less familiar, but perhaps more important, task of exploring the intriguing and meaningful ideas they gave rise to.

20 postcards with cover

Dimensions: 14.8 x 10.5 cm
