Tower of cards

Tis the season to be jolly wasteful, apparently.

Astragal was touched to see postsacks brimming with glad tidings from a host of architects, engineers and PR companies. However, in this the age of sustainability, it was something of a surprise to see mounds of identical, facsimile-signed cards sent from single offices to each member of the AJ team; points for making us feel most special go to Zaha Hadid, with a grand total of 10 gold-embossed numbers cards sent in individually addressed shimmering envelopes. At the risk of appearing Scrooge-like, next year feel free to send us your eco-friendly best on just one card addressed to the AJ team.
