mysterious letters


i am so in love with this project i could spit.
it seems that Michael Crowe and Lenka Clayton plan to write letters to every person on earth. they've begun by sending personal handwritten letters, notes, and postcards to 467 households in the small Irish village of Cushendall. the project has come to the attention of BBC Newsline who did a story on them, and the two artists are now documenting the project on their blog, Mysterious Letters, which you simply MUST go peruse because it's positively lovely.

I knew about this project! Isn'it great? I would have loved to get one of those messages, even if probably I would have thought at something creepy at the beginning!!
