This mailing card comes with its very own specimen window.

Here’s a rather delightful thing: a mailing card with its very own specimen window! Made by Tokyo-based illustrator Haruka Shinji, this missive allows you to preserve a tiny memento from your travels (be it a sprig of flora, a public transport ticket or something else that charms you) and send it on to a loved one. Nab it for around $14 at Spoon Tamago.

This little feature first appeared in the pages of frankie issue 83. Nab a copy over here, or subscribe from $10.50.
