Wonderful package of mail art from Tic Tac Patrizia (Starnberg, Germany) that an includes an artists' book of vispo Tic Tac made with Serse Luigetti (Perugia, Italy). Perfect material for Asemic Front 2:

FAB stuff!

It was my pleasure to collab with the fab DVS!

By popular demand, here are the last two (snail mail) collaborations by the great Jayne B. Lyons & me for Asemic Front 2.

All joking aside, Jayne did a great salvage job on two less-than-stellar starters.

Okay...will do, DVS! Stay tuned, Mister Richard C!

Comment by De Villo Sloan on June 19, 2019 at 3:19am

Richard, Jayne recently visited Picasso Gaglione and Darling Darlene in Tennessee! That's almost as historic as your visit from Diane Keys and Lucy Pear. Or the storage shed adventure. I'm keeping a close eye on Dare Ms. Jayne Lions.

Jayne, why don't you share pics on the humble Yoma Platform of you and Dr. Dada? (She put them on fb)

Anyway, I do have several as yet unposted colabs with Jayne. So I'll share them soon.

Not to toot our own horn, but...loving these collabs between DVS and JBL!
