Send a Tiny Letter to Someone Special


The World’s Smallest Post Service (WSPS) is a transcription service and roaming post office based in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is a project created and managed by artist Lea Redmond.

Notes about WSPS (from Leafcutter Designs):

The WSPS began in 2008 as a quirky little social art project. Postmaster Lea Redmond sets up her tiny roaming office in cafes and shops in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond and offers a teeny tiny letter transcription service to passers-by. At these appearances the letters are transcribed by hand on a miniature, wooden roll-top desk in the tiniest of script, sealed with a miniscule wax seal with the sender’s initial pressed into it, and packaged up with a magnifying glass.
