Letters of Triangles - письма-треугольники

65.00

There was a time in which soldiers, having a prolonged absence from home, were thought to suffer and sometimes die of 'Nostalgia'. This malaise later became known as homesickness. During WWII Russian soldiers sent triangular correspondence to their loved ones. In these письма-треугольники, the letter and envelope were one, allowing censors to access and omit any sensitive material without compromising the structure. The simple design meant the content and address never became separated and made the letters easily identifiable as priority mail to the postal service.

Letterpress printed edition of 10. Letters are housed in a handmade clamshell box with mascara stained handkerchief inkjet printed linings and special edition triangular letter. Edition printed with Copper and Gold ink on found paper and tracing paper, special edition letter printed on Rives Arches on a Heidleburg Platten Press. Published by Battenburg Press, Manchester in April of 2013.
