In the spirit of W. Reginald Bray and Harriet Russell, comes the project by James Addison, "Puzzles for Postmen." There's something so fun about what each of these people did to experiment with the post. I love the wonderment contained in such simple things. That's, at heart, the magic of the mail. Here's what James has to say about his project:
"I’ve always had a fascination with the Royal Mail. How a letter can physically travel from one end of the country to the other for just 57p is still brilliant (you can’t even buy a Double-Decker chocolate bar for that price).
For the past five years I have been challenging the British postal system by writing and sending cryptic addresses on envelopes. From maps and symbols to word-searches and drawings of the destination, they never fail to deliver and I have a growing admiration for their patience and perseverance."
