Not much activity here. Not many people doing add & passes. Is mail art dying out?
Following Ruud’s comment, I concur. Mailart is doing quite well. Add & Passes are a special breed of mailart. I like them but hopefully the ones I receive are fairly new. That will usually give me some freedom to add that works with what is there. From there, I will decide: “return to sender, address is known” or I will pass them on to someone I know that likes A & Ps.
A & Ps that have been in the network for years and are likely copies of copies are more difficult. I always brand them “Zombie” A & Ps and I will just treat them as starters. Very often, one cannot even determine who the started the A & P.
I have an "add + pass" sitting here ready to stamp + mail!
While you posted this a few years ago--I'm happy to send along to you!
