Overview

Embark on a puzzling journey through the Royal Mail

Open this book, and you will discover a most curious and diverting collection of decorated envelopes, all of which have been sent though the United Kingdom's 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 envelopes arrived at their intended destinations, but they did, and all have postmarks to prove it! Their safe delivery is a tribute to the heroic postal employees who rose to the challenge.
