Looking for the Name of a Book About Postcards

Hi all! Hopefully this is the right place to post this.

I am looking for a book that showed hundreds of pieces of mail in which the addresses were encrypted or coded somehow and the lady who sent them documented how many actually arrived at the destination (most of them!).

I felt like I had read about this on the Postcrossing blog or somewhere else in Postcrossing, but I could not find it anywhere. I searched the internet but could not find it anywhere. So, I turn to you, dear Postcrossers (:

Thanks for any help!

@shanaqui - have you posted about this book in the blog or somewhere on the forum? Or do you by any chance know the title?

Thank you, but I believe it was a published book.

AH ha! I believe I found it. Thanks for the help, everyone! For anyone interested, it was called Envelopes: A Puzzling Journey Through the Royal Mail by Harriet Russell.


these letters appeared in Spain in 1950


Granted, not what the original poster was looking for…but this woman’s work is great!!! Thanks!!

Those are so cool! Thanks for sharing!
