Envelopes : A Puzzling Journey Through the Royal Mail, Hardback

Envelopes : A Puzzling Journey Through the Royal Mail Hardback


Embark on a puzzling journey through Royal Mail. Open this book, and you will discover a most curious and diverting collection of illustrated envelopes, all of which have been sent through the Royal Mail system.

In "Envelopes", Harriet Russell has created a wealth of different ways of communicating an address: mazes, join-the-dots, anagrams, illustrations, puns, visual games, experimental fonts, puzzles, and literary wordplay.

You may find it hard to believe that the majority of the envelopes arrived at their intended destinations, but they did, and all have the postmarks to prove it!

Their safe delivery is a tribute to the heroic postal employees who rose to the challenge.
