TGV Concorde Escargot

1992    Large postcard " TGV. Concorde. Escargot," written and illustrated by Pierre Hano.  Limited printing of 300.  ©Edition des Escargophiles.  £1.99 from auststamp, Australia, through eBay, May, '06. 

The proud concorde is put down by the TGV, who mentions that he himself does not pollute the way the concorde does.  The snail rebukes them both for their claims.  "I'd rather climb around on a rose than listen to your claims."  The postcard's picture explicitates for us that this is a fable.
