Emin pushes the envelope

What better way to celebrate Christmas than with a writing paper and matching envelope set designed by none other than Tracey Emin? Two designs by the Brit artist are available through the Posted company, with Emin's "bird on a branch" or "reclining figure" drawing embossed on the striking stationery (the set comes in a jaunty custom made folder with a ribbon tie, stitched with Tracey’s signature. And the fee for Emin's natty notepaper? £50.00). Artists Jane Simpson and Georgie Hopton have also put pen to paper (literally), providing designs for writing materials. Posted is a temporary exhibition space housed in a former post office in east london that presents a series of exhibitions, performances, and workshops celebrating (yes, you guessed it) the UK's postal history and heritage (for US readers that means the mail). www.postedprojects.co.uk
