Stars including Coldplay, Dame Helen Mirren and Stephen Fry have designed and decorated envelopes for a U.K. literacy campaign.

Dame Shirley Bassey, Star Trek's Simon Pegg and Dame Judi Dench also tapped into their creative sides to transform everyday envelopes into works of art for the National Literacy Trust's annual Pushing the Envelope appeal.

Coldplay offered a cartoon depiction of the band, Mirren drew a playful picture of a woman literally pushing an envelope, while Fry doodled one of his trademark colourful ties.

Fans can bid on the celebrities' envelopes on auction website eBay.com next month.

All proceeds will benefit the National Literacy Trust, which helps disadvantaged families in the U.K. gain reading and writing skills needed for success.
