All About a Box

Ever notice just how extensive the mailbox icon is? It appears in ads and movies and most frequently when someone is trying to depict our everyday world. Next time you watch a movie, notice if there is a mailbox or collection box in the background of any shots.

How often do you see a mailbox icon in print ads? Too bad USPS can't collect a fee for every time it has been used!

It's a part of our lives, our history, our national cultural fabric.

This print ad was in a bridal magazine. What do you think they were trying to convey with it?

What was the artist trying to convey? Hopefully not a "Dear Jane" letter!
