One day, while talking about the film version of the story, Eva realized she had never read the book. She found it for free and discovered she loved the humor in the written story. And then discovered there is a series of Oz books. She bought the complete collection.
The card to the left shows a milo field, which, not surprisingly, reminds Eva of yellow bricks. L Frank Baum, the author of the Oz stories, got his idea of a yellow brick road from a road in Michigan, near where he vacationed as a child. Although, I can easily see how Kansas's vast milo fields could inspire the idea.
Oz Postcard Project, where she collects all manner of postcards that reference Oz in some way. This tornado postcard reminds me how much I love the tornado mailart Eva received from an artist in Hungary!
I haven't read the original books, but I did read the re-imagined story, Wicked, by Gregory Maguire a few years ago and enjoyed it very much, though not its sequel.
