TOR LUNDVALL HOLIDAY GREETING CARDS 2005

It may be too late to be cool and make use of them this year, but if you want to plan early for next year, there are a few last sets of Tor Lundvall Holiday Greeting Cards 2005 Edition, available at Strange Fortune until sold out.

Tor Lundvall Holiday Greeting Cards Edition 2005 is a boxed set of 15 greeting cards featuring magically enchanting winterscape paintings by Tor Lundvall.

Tor's visuals will be familiar to many of you from his distinctive album covers for his fine recordings as well as for SOL INVICTUS and others.

The 2005 edition is a small limited edition of just 100 boxes, featuring the Tor Lundvall paintings "Winter Sun," "Still," and "Outpost." Next year's edition will feature different paintings once again.
