Rate this:

Feeling nostalgic for the almost forgotten written letter, author and former ad man Ivan Cash fell upon a simple idea: he invited anyone in the world to send him an email, and he'd write it out in a letter and mail it, for free. Participants could even request a doodle or to seal it with a kiss.

What started out as a personal art project exploded into a worldwide event. As requests poured in, Cash enlisted an international army of volunteers who helped create more than 10,000 letters sent all over the globe.

An addictive and artful window into everyday lives, Snail Mail My Emailis a collection of the most memorable letters and moments from the project, and a reminder of the power of personal connection in a digital world.

"How heartfelt emails become words of art."--PostSecret

"Call it technology in reverse."--CNN

"Marries the romance of analog with the convenience of digital."--GOOD
