I was considering a post on “The Art of Letter Writing” and then I received my latest issue of The Postal Record. Voila! Speaking of artistic letters, The Graceful Envelope Contest takes Mail Art to museum heights. This contest is sponsored by The National Association of Letter Carriers in conjunction with The Washington, DC Calligraphers Guild. Imagine, these beautiful artworks must be mailed and delivered like any other piece of first class mail.
The 2013 theme: “A World of Change” inspired amazing results, as you can see from these glorious envelopes shown above. For a look at all the winning entries go to calligraphersguild.org
