Pushing the Envelope

Feast your eyes on 138 postal artworks on show at the King's Cross gallery, commemorating the 175th anniversary of the Penny Black- the world's first postage stamp. Hereford College of Arts have invited an international line-up of artists and illustrators to mark the date by creating and sending decorated envelopes, embellished with intricate typography, collage and painting. The miniature pieces of artwork have made there way to London from the USA, Japan, Australia and across Europe, and after their stint in the capital, will continue to travels onwards to be exhibited at Hay Festival 2015.
