The Snail Mail My Email project was created in 2011 by artist Ivan Cash, during which 234 volunteers collectively sent 10,457 letters to 70 countries over a month-long span, the content of which inspired 'Snail Mail My Email' - the book.
The project has since transitioned to a week-long event that takes place annually. The next installment is tentatively scheduled for Fall 2013. To date, a total of 431 volunteers have collectively sent 13,968 letters across the world.
The Snail Mail My Email project aims to reignite the lost art of letter writing, reminding us of the power of personal connection in a digital world.
