NOT-ANOTHER-BILL: THE ARTFUL POSTCARD

Bring back the nostalgia of receiving something good in the post with Not-Another-Bill's vintage trike wielding post man and The Artful Postcard.

Visitors can send unique works of art to their friends, family or even themselves all in postcard form. Simply pick up a blank, stamped postcard from Not-Another-Bill's postman, fill in the delivery address and pop it into his very own postbox.

20 select participating fair artists will then decorate, design and doodle over the postcards as they wish. In keeping with Not-Another-Bill’s ethos of making letterboxes more magical, all will be diligently sent onwards so that the recipients receive a sweet surprise on their doorstep following the fair!

 
 



Not-­Another-­Bill is a unique gift subscription service delivering it’s subscribers a carefully curated surprise present in the post each month.. ‘It all started when we realised that no ­one got anything good in the post anymore, just pizza menus and bills. Since then we’ve made it our mission to make letterboxes a more magical place. Now, at the start of each month our subscribers receive a beautifully wrapped and carefully curated surprise present in the post. The presents we send are not available on the high street, we work exclusively with designers to create truly unique gifts. From our boxes, ribbons and beautiful tissue paper to the personalised letter explaining the collaboration, we really consider how every detail of the experience looks and feels.

Let’s Be Brief (LBB) is a platform that bridges the gap between culture & business for creative entrepreneurs and community.

LBB is creative learning & practise 21st Century style. We do not fit neatly into prescriptive boxes. Instead we run with the beta. We choose transformation, over categorisation, because that’s where the excitement lies.
