An iconic red London phone booth backed by an ornate black wrought iron fence is just one detail in an intricate collection of five postcards Barb Shober painted and gave to her world-traveling daughter as a birthday gift this year.

Of all the tiny features Shober put on this postcard that took her hours to paint, perhaps the most surprising detail of this masterpiece is that she fully expected her daughter to destroy it when she received it.
