Letterboxing is an intriguing pastime combining stamp artistry with delightful quests in beautiful, scenic places. Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by following clues found on dedicated websites, and then record their discoveries in their personal journal with the help of a hand-carved rubber stamp. From the day in 1854 when James Perrott placed a bottle for visitors’ cards on a moor in Dartmoor,
England, to the thousands of letterboxes today scattered throughout North America, the quaint outdoor activity has come a long way. This fascinating, family-friendly sport—with its intriguing mix of hiking, puzzle solving, navigation, and artistry, topped off with the thrill of discovery—offers something for everyone.
The Letterboxer’s Companion covers all you need to know, from the history of letterboxing to tips on writing and following clues, and from instruction in carving personal stamps to letterboxing etiquette—in short, everything an aspiring letterboxer needs to get started.
Randy Hall is a cofounder of the Letterboxing North America website, letterboxing.org, and is a nationally ranked orienteer.
