As far as we could remember, the envelope has always carried the stamp. But what if for once the stamp could carry the envelope? The soul of the inseparable companion would finally be seen through a window at the heart of the written matter. In collaboration with Daniele Latini, this student project was presented in 2002 to the RSA (Royal Society of Arts) following a Royal Mail competition to develop a new and definitive stamp. The project ended up as an eulogy to the envelope and the craftsmanship of enveloping patterns.
