Thanks for sharing these Ruud.  Michael's stampings were terrific always - even the most boring ones he'd found were given a new lease of life in his hands with additions of quirky humour and elaborate hand written anecdotes.

Biography

Michael Scott was born in Leeds, Yorkshire in 1934, where he spent most of his life. His family owned a textile factory, which he inherited after the death of his father. As a businessman, he lived reserved and was a man of secrets. His heart beat for the art, but he had no formal art training. He participated in the mail art since the early 1970s. He had close contacts with Genesis P. Orridge, Robin Crozier and Graciela Gutiérrez Marx and created wonderful letters that he decorated with collages and stamps. His mail art was mainly focused on a “one to one” relationship, but he has also contributed to publications such as Vile, Arte Postale, and Rubber Stamp Madness. Michael Scott was known especially for his 11th Hour Pagescapes, and in 1979 he organized the largest mail art show in the UK, the “Poste restante” at the Liverpool Academy of Arts. In 1988 he committed suicide.

For the 10th anniversary of his death an assembling with contributions by Anna Banana, Roger Radio, John Evans and others, which also contains many facsimiles of his 11th Hour Pagescapes was done.
