Jonathan Monk | Picture Postcard Posted from Postbox Pictured
One of the best mail art projects in decades, Jonathan Monk's Picture Postcard Posted from Postbox Pictured are a series of postcards featuring photographs of post boxes from around the world. When the buyer purchases a card Monk addresses and signs it, and then mails it in an envelope to the publishers in the various cities (Hong Kong, New York, London, Torino, Paris, San Francisco, Berlin, etc.) who then affix a stamp and send it to the buyer, mailing it from the postbox pictured on the front.
The Canadian versions (Toronto and Winnipeg) can be purchased here and here, for fifty dollars each.
