Art Student Fails To Confound UK Postal Service




Harriet Russell sent 130 letters to herself when she was an art student, encrypting her address in more and more elaborate ways as her experiment progressed. She used mirror image writing, cartoons, sight and colour-blindness tests and even a crossword which, when solved, revealed the address in the answers.

Amazingly only 10 of the 13o failed to make it to the destination. The crossword one was delivered with the note "Solved by the Glasgow Mail Centre".
