Can you imagine a souvenir shop at the base of Mount Doom? What about a kitschy general store in the middle of Kings Landing? British print company myprint247 certainly has, and they’ve created some pretty clever postcards as a result. Aside from Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, the company also drew inspiration from iconic fictional places like Gotham City and Jurassic Park, the vintage travel imagery and witty slogans hearkening back to a time long before Instagram and Snapchat came along.

Kings Landing
Amity Island
Arendelle
Gotham City
