Haptic Poetry

Haptic poetry combines characteristics of typography and sculpture to create work not only to be seen but to be touched. This group is for anyone who values sense of touch as much as sense of sight.

Hi spend more time on Facebook and did not check the invitation. Thank you Bifidus Jones!

I want to make some recycle art.

Where I am sending it to?

Erni, good to see you back at Haptic!

Now where might be Bifidus?

TIME for sandpo?

Comment by Katerina Nikoltsou (MomKat) on August 29, 2013 at 3:21pm

Yay! Good to see some are arriving, Bifidus!

I sent out a few "25" IUOMA cards but I only put on 78 euro cent has been the postage for some time, since it was raised back then from 75.

Today I discovered that Greek postage has been raised again

 OMG! to 90 cents! Steep hike up!

Looks like I will be sending out less and less :-(
