R and Q

Those of you fluent in the language of flags will observe that the letters being spelled out here are an R and a Q. What we are seeing on this postcard is a rare image of the US Naval Chapter of Oulipo signalling a tribute to their founder, the great and much missed polymath, Raymond Queneau. This is especially appreciated by the literati of Hill House where M. Queneau’s fiction is held in the very highest regard.
