Got to share this here - Dean made my day with this one. No envelope or packaging. Three cheers to the postal service and (at least) five cheers to Dean!

Comment by Valentine Mark Herman yesterday

StripSue, I must tell you that you have to join the back of the queue that Dean has created. He has already committed me to send out 9,474 Vinyl Val masterpieces. I don'tunderstand why almost 8,000 of them are for people in the Crimea.

Comment by Dean aka Artist in Seine yesterday

OH yes Stripygoose.  Please participate.  Just for info as it is not written in the flier.  For every LP you send Val, he will send you two of his after the show.  A chance of a lifetime to own an original Vinyl Val.

Comment by Valentine Mark Herman yesterday

Welcome Stripygoose!

Below is an extract from an earmier Discussion I posted about a forthcoling Vinyl Art Exhibition.

perhaps you'd like to contribute to it...

Vinyl Val.

INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN MY FORTHCOMING VINYL ART EXHIBITION

Bonjour!

I intend to hold an Exhibition of Vinyl Art in the Spring of 2015. I don't have an exact date, but it will be around about Easter (end March/start April). I don't know exactly when, but I know where -- the Médiathèque in Sigean, France. I haven't written to the Mairie about this yet, but to get permission to use the Médiathèque should be a formality.

The Exhibition will be entitled something like 'Vinyl Art', and be by 'Mark Herman and Friends'. It will comprise about 60 pieces of Vinyl Art -- aproximately half by me, half by my Friends

.....there is more in the Discussion

Comment by Heleen de Vaan on Sunday

Did you know that Bhutan has issued seven vinyl stamps in 1973? They are even said to be able to be played on a record player!

And more recently, the Suiss post has issued a vinyl stamp in September 2014!

See for some picture this stamp blog (text in Dutch, but they'll speak for themselves, with or without translate.google or recordplayer :-) )

Five more collage Vinyls.

The first is called 'Unknown French World War 1 Soldiers'.

I don't know who these soldiers are. The ones bottom left and centre might be of the same soldier. If so, that's quite remarkable, because I acquired the cards at different times and in different places. Does the large card indicate that he died?

The second is called 'Spanish Artiste'.

I have no idea who the Senorita is, but she looks very formidable. These signed and numbered postcards date from 1903.

The third is entitled 'Four Very English Young Ladies'.

These are personalised studio postcards (circa 1920-30) of the type of English young ladies that you don't see any more, alas. Debuttants, perhaps?

Personalised studio postcards were probably the equivalent of Farcebook or something equally daft.

Number 4 is called 'Sweet Memories'.

'Doux souvenirs' -- sort of French Valentine's Day postcards from the early 1900s

And last of all, we have 'Four French Girls'.

These are studio portrait cards from the early 1900s. The girl top left is wearing her Communion dress.

Thank you, Darwin. I hadn't realised that the Seine School of Creation favoured Hamburg.

What does the School have to say about other ways of cooking eggs -- boiled, poached, coddled, scrambled, etc?

Comment by Dean aka Artist in Seine on November 5, 2014 at 1:42pm

I think Erni came first.  Before there were chickens.
