Doubly awesome

I was searching for some dingbats online while designing labels for my postcard packaging, and came across one called "Mail Art". The name got me curious, so I googled it.

Here's a search result that caught my eye:

Her post led me then to the Mail Me Art website, which is run by Darren Di Lieto, the founder and co-editor of the illustration news portal the Little Chimp Society. The project started in 2008, and has since been displayed in exhibitions in London and published into a book.

The elation of seeing a letter addressed to you is awesome,
but receiving mail with amazing artwork?
I have no words.
Doubly awesome, and then some!
