I have some pretty cool friends. A friend from my Gustavus days is Matt Bergstrom who grew up in Minneapolis but calls Chicago home. Matt is wonderfully creative. And amazingly artistic–with paper.

There is Faneuil Hall.
The Lake Point Tower.
A collection of Lake Michigan lighthouses.
And even a collection of Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) trains.
You can order postcards at the Wurlington Bros. Press website and build these items on your own. Fun stuff! Detailed step-by-step instructions included.
