A mail art idea
Sometimes I take a detour on my way home from work and drop into my local discount book shop. While recently browsing through the art section, I came across this book, Wallpaper: The Ultimate Guide by Charlotte Abrahams.
I have no intention of papering any walls at present, but as I browsed through the book I found that it was largely made up of vibrant, full-scale samples printed on thick uncoated paper, featuring a great mix of floral, geometric and modern prints.
I snapped the book up for £12, thinking I would probably slice up the pages to use in some mail art. But then I had a brainwave. Why not photocopy the pages instead so I can reuse the book over and over?
So here are a couple of letters going out this week using pages from the book. Enjoy!
