Ministry of Stories Post Office

Permanent installation at Hoxton St Monster Supplies. Est. 2019

Hoxton Street Monster supplies sells all kinds of weird and wonderful products to monsters, and occasionally opens its doors to humans too. I was commissioned to transform half of the shop area into a magical post office where children can write letters to monsters, choosing their new pen friend from a correspondence board full of lonely monster’s letters. Once posted via the special “Post Mortem” service, the children can expect a reply within a month from a yeti, an ogre, a werewolf, or other monstrous creatures. This service is part of the Ministry of Stories, a charity and mentoring organisation that supports children to explore creative writing.

You can visit the shop in Hoxton! Have a look at their website for a map and current opening hours.
