Hate Mail – the book
Illustrator Mr Bingo has gathered together some of the highlights of his Hate Mail project into a new book.
Hate Mail started last year, when Bingo started to send out (highly) offensive messages and illustrations on vintage postcards to paying subscribers.
As Bingo says, ‘I love post, and I’m worried people don’t get enough “fun” post these days.
‘Last year I sent a postcard to a stranger called Jonathan Hopkins. It said on it, “Fuck you Jonathan, fuck you and fuck your shit legs.”
‘People seemed to be in to it, so I opened a service on my website.
Bingo has now sent out more than 400 Hate Mails, bearing heartening missives such as ‘Dear Tim, You’re a massive git’, and ‘Dear Stephen, you disappoint me on every level’.
The highlights have now been brought together in a new collection, published by Penguin.
