Some stamps that me and Vittore Baroni in Italy collaborated on a couple of years ago.

Beautifully printed fall 2019 Brexit Postcard from Alan Brignull of Essex. The off-register printing of the British flag implies so much, no matter what your outlook.

Don't you think the piece dances on the borders of visual poetry?

The back has been double-cancelled by the Royal Mail, has a triple-language air mail sticker, a 'dot-matrix' IUoMA logo, an address-artistamp (never seen that before!) an oldtype letterpress-style "ESSEX POST GOES AND COMES EVERY DAY :" stamp, and more. Thank you for this wonderful, topical, soon-to-be historic piece.

Maybe I did something good in another life?

Anyone in touch with Ona Doddle?  She came to the CURIOUS THINGS exhibition on Saturday apparently but didn't leave any forwarding address or number. Any clues greatly appreciated.

Yet one more death announcement that made me stop and stand still - when I heard his age. Hearing too many of these led to me making this self-portrait earlier in the year.

Yes, fonts can only sustain you for so long!   The Bonzos were a big part of my listening pleasure from the 60's onwards.  He will be greatly missed by many who loved that sort of  British musical eccentricity. I must watched that "How sweet...." too- thanks for mentioning it!

He did tell me that he had retired from mail art madness to concentrate on fonts.  I guess once it's in the blood . . .

Been watching 'how sweet to be an idiot ' on you tube.  Neil may not have been a God like Clapton et al, but he had a huge influence on my life one way or another . . .

Yes, very sad day - and he was only 75 - two years old than me - makes you think!

R I P Neil Innes.

The Bonzos changed my way of looking at the world; and that was just the start . . .
