While checking out the blog of my favorite stationery shop, Felix Doolittle, I came across a wonderful project called Snail Mail My Email. This letter-writing project, brought to life by artist Ivan Cash, "is a month-long worldwide collaborative art project that ran
from July 15 - August 15, 2011. The project allowed people to email a letter,
which was then handwritten by volunteers — complete with customizable options
like a doodle, flower petal or lipstick kiss if desired — and mailed to the
recipient, completely free of charge." In the end, "234 volunteers from around the world wrote 10,457 letters that were sent to over 70 countries spanning across all seven continents." Isn't that remarkable? The photos above are from the project's Flickr photostream.
