A Nice Pair: Aretha Franklin

This week, we’re switching things up slightly and instead of recommending a book and record pairing, we’re pairing an album with some truly iconic greeting cards…

We’ll start by wishing a very Happy Mother’s Day to those who celebrate! Whether you do or not, how about sending a card to an iconic person in your life? Any day of the month is a good day for letting someone special know how important they are to you. These greeting cards by Chronicle feature 20 different iconic women in music, anthropology, politics and beyond. The woman iconic enough to grace the cover of the box is the late, great Aretha Franklin.

We’re pairing these cards with Aretha’s self-titled album, a 2-LP career retrospective that includes some of her biggest hits, including Chain of Fools, (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman and Respect.

Music for the soul to share with your soulmate.
