Italian designer Francesco Mugnai posted a great collection of 22 unusual mailboxes, of which seven geeky favorites are shown here. The Power Mac G4 takes the cake because of its double entendre. Suddenly snail mail has all new appeal. The X-Wing mailbox below was made by MAKE community member Craig Smith (and mined from our blog).

Goli Mohammadi

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

    Years ago in our town, a family named Bullock had a mailbox that was a covered wagon pulled by oxen (bullocks).

    My mailbox seems so boring now. I have to do something about that…

      I was thinking the same thing, Gus!
