In this age of immediate and widespread communication, Small Print International 6 is taking us back to a time when personal, hand drawn correspondence was treasured.
For our sixth edition, we are inviting artists to create work inspired by the first Aerogramme. This was introduced into the Iraqi postal service in 1933 by the Inspector General of Posts and Telegraphs. For many years, the aerogramme remained the cheapest form of international communication, and people often went to extreme lengths to make the best use of the space available, including writing in different colours, in different directions, and printing directly onto the aerogrammes. Self-adhesive strips along the edges of the paper allowed it to be folded and sealed, and therefore private, without the added weight of an envelope.
Entry Fees (for up to 3 pieces of work)
