Artist Call Out: Small Print International 6

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, which was introduced into the Iraqi postal service in 1933 by the Inspector General of Posts and Telegraphs. 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.
