We all know some of the best things come in the smallest of packages (ahem, this little printer is proof positive!), and the S.F.-based publishing house Chronicle Books has decided to exploit our love of all things teeny-tiny with an inventive new kit by Oakland-based artist Lea Redmond. dubbed The World's Smallest Post Service. So, what is it exactly? In essence, a collection of 40 mini writing sheets, 40 mini envelopes, 60 envelope seals, 4 mini gift boxes and tiny sheets of faux New York Times packing papers, twine, postage stamps, and the like! (Check out the video below to see how it all works!)
Born out of a social art project Redmond launched in 2008, in which she would set up shop at S.F. cafes and boutiques and transcribe tiny letters for passer-by (even sealing the envelopes with tiny wax seals pressed with the sender's initials!), this awesome kit can now be yours for the holidays!
As part of The World's Smallest Post Service's blog tour, Refinery29 is giving away one of these adorable sets containing all of the above, plus some super-special teeny-tiny stationery customized by Redmond just for us!
