4 Saturnalia Christmas Cards, 1 Study Like Athena Pencil. Roman Mythology Bundle

4 Saturnalia Christmas Cards, 1 Study Like Athena Pencil. Roman Mythology Bundle
£3.99 1 Available
Love this


Get 4 historical/classical/sarcastical cards and envelopes with this bundle of Saturnalia Christmas postcards, plus a Study Like Athena HB graphite pencil. Send them through the post at Christmas for an alternative season's greetings, or include with a present for your favourite classics/mythology nerd...

Each card is professionally printed on matte 100% recycled 350gsm, A6 (10.5cm x 14.8cm) cardstock. The inside of the card is blank so you can add your own message; the back is blank except for my stamp. Actual print colour may vary from monitor to monitor and because each set is made to order. There may be speckling on your cards as they are recycled from post-consumer waste. Cardstock is pH neutral and Long life certified. Stamps not included.

PLEASE NOTE: each pencil is handmade by my supplier then stamped individually. As pictured, each pencil is slightly different. There are often grey marks on the pencil from the process, the wood is often differing shades of brown and the eraser may not fit 'perfectly'. I cannot offer a refund if you consider your pencils 'imperfect'; if you would prefer a 'perfect' pencil then please visit a supermarket. Actual pencil colour may vary from monitor to monitor and because each set is made to order.


I made these after being inspired by stories of the Ancient Roman December celebration of Saturnalia (sometimes called a forerunner to Christmas).
