tokyo envelopes exhibition

Satoshi Kitamura, Dave McKee and Klaus Flugge got together with the Tokyo Post Office Museum to host an exhibition of envelopes decorated by themselves and other artists such as Posy Simmonds, Tony Ross, Axel Scheffler, Emma Chichester Clark, Max Velthuis and a bunch of other amazing illustrators. A couple months ago, Satoshi sent me a letter (with a beautifully hand painted envelope!) asking if he could include one of my envelopes in this exhibition. Today I got a very lovely, very polite letter from the Japanese exhibition hosts and this gorgeous little book. On the title page, it says e = picture, futo = envelope.

I'm slightly embarrassed because this was the first time I'd used this pig-on-orange image, and I liked it so much that I repainted it for a few other people. So I hope they don't spot it and feel let down that their image isn't entirely unique. :-P But I still think it's a very cool sounding exhibition. I wish I could go to Tokyo and see it!
Here are the details, if you do happen to be in Tokyo:
Location: Teishin Sogo Hakubutsukan (Teipark)
Nearest station is Otemachi Metro Station exit A4 or A5
2nd June – 8th July 2007, 9:00am~16:30pm, closed Mondays
