While attending the great Gold Coast Art Fair in Chicago this past June, I came across the work of Jackie Mortillaro, who produces a fine collection of coasters featuring images of Chicago (among other things), which make them a nice memento of a trip to the city or a gift for someone special.

I was tempted to buy a few of these finely crafted coasters, a set featuring images of Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs – but I decided not to in the end. However, I did take Ms. Mortillaro’s card so I could order when I got home – and I am finally getting around to it.

This set of Chicago Cubs coasters (right) from Jackie Mortillaro will go nicely with my growing collection of tiles from places I have visited.
