Wednesday, July 12th marks the bicentennial of the birth of Henry David Thoreau. To celebrate his ongoing legacy as an essayist, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, and historian, we’ve put together ten digital postcards for you to share across social media.
Each one utilizes artwork by Maximilien Le Roy from our book, Thoreau: A Sublime Life and features a quote from Thoreau.
