There are few things in life more satisfying than the arrival of a postcard on your doormat, a scrawled message of "We're camping near Ajaccio. Lovely weather. We eat well. I've got sunburn," somehow more rewarding than a thousand text messages ever could be. In fact, Twitter's 140-character limit, based on the original character count of SMS, was in turn taken from the idea that most postcards have around 160 characters or less. That's how impossibly cool postcards are and just one of the reasons why we couldn't be more thrilled to be releasing our very own box set.

Containing 75 postcards of 75 unforgettable i-D covers — from Madonna to Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell to Björk and Cara Delevingne — the boxed set charts i-D's collaborations with countless models, stylists, and photographers and makes a very good stocking filler, if we do say so ourselves. So take Agyness Deyn to the post office! Stick Kristen McMenamy in a letter box! Wake up to Tom Ford on your doormat! And remember: a stamp and a wink gets you further than you think.

i-D: 75 Postcards of 75 Covers is out now and available at all good retailers. Purchase online here.
