Mail Art

 Tara Bliven of  Ephemera Press (a small letterpress company) has been organizing a fun art letter exchange called The Elevated Envelope. How wonderful to get something like these in your mailbox! Mail art has always been popular but some of these are really lovely! This gorgeous dragon letter with exquisite calligraphty was created by Bridgette Hefferan.
I'm going to register for the next round I think! This green letter was created by Teresa Banman, the snowball globe has actually got a clear cover on it and you can see the small painting she did inside.
 Doodles by Julie Goette I like this one.
An envelope created by Tara herself!  Fun to read about the process.

You must also read the story behind this Lunar Moth envelope done by Elizabeth M Corsa!

Wow, fantastic. I try to dress up my letters to my penpals but nothing like this for the most part.
