Mysterious Letters

Ah. Another community minded project to love (much like Outdoor Knit & Matchbox Project I blogged about recently) - this time Mysterious Letters personally handwritten by Lenka & Michael to 467 households in the small Irish village of Cushendall! Here's what Lenka & Michael have to say:

'We hoped these unsolicited letters would prompt neighbourly discussion, spreading across the town, promoting community curiosity. The art work consists solely of the discussion between the recipients about what on Earth these letters are, who sent them and why, etc.’

What an excellent way to bring back the lost art of letter writing & to create a little community bonding don't you think? Read more lovely little letters at their blog, it's pretty engrossing.
