AWESOME

Came across Mysterious Letters through Grace's Twitter feed and was charmed. The letters and postcards read very much like Nick Bantock's Griffin & Sabine, only they're real!

In April 2009, we sent a personal, handwritten letter to each of the 467 households in the small Irish village of Cushendall. 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.

It is fascinating, isn't it? I love how all of the letters are so unique and charming. If I were writing to a stranger, I wouldn't know what to write other than "You don't know me but...".
