|Nishida's book of efuto|
Every invoice Nishida mails is enclosed in an amazing original work of art that seamlessly incorporates postage stamps into his canvas. Those two elements plus the fact that the envelope containing the bill is the artist's canvas, makes the whole package uniquely appealing.
Dubbed efuto (literally "picture envelope"), Nishida's envelopes are actually an offshoot of the more traditional Japanese hand painted postcards known as etegami (literally "picture letter"). You can visit Nishida's blog,Nishida TV, to get a better picture of what efuto's are all about or better yet you can hire the illustrator and maybe get your very own priceless bill wrapper in the mail.
