Mail Games: Testing the System
Illustrator Harriet Russell has been testing the patience and willpower of the UK’s Royal Mail postal service with a series of coded envelopes. As part of her studies at the Glasgow School of Art, the young artist set about disguising her address within puzzles, illustrations, anagrams, crosswords, maps and optical illusions. The illustrator’s initial experiment contained a mirror image of her address. The envelope arrived at her door within standard local delivery time.
