americana in switzerland
I came across this cute wrapping paper while browsing the stationery section at Globus, a department stores on the Bahnofstrasse, the other day. I thought the juxtaposition of the paper display–gnomes and little Indian chiefs was a little odd, but mostly I wondered: Is this paper sold in the US? I’ve already seen a couple of Swiss kids in my neighborhood dressed like Pocahontas and Squanto, though I have no idea why. (For a school activity?) I’ve also seen posters advertising exhibits on Native American artifacts. It is going to be interesting to see representations on America’s history from a different perspective. I wonder what I’ll learn.
This paper is adorable!!!!
