CARRIER

___________________________

Artwork for an exhibition of original mail art at House of Illustration,
a gallery near King's Cross in London, in collaboration with  Hereford College of Arts
and The Hay Literary Festival. My work reflects the old days of carrier post,
that is now, unfortunately, an almost forgotten and extinct method.
The work will be exhibited at three venues over a seven-week period.
