"Allison any idea how these hold up over time ? Regular glue sticks appear to lose their adhesion over the years. I'm only talking about 2-5 years, but still for me it's a concern."

As bad as things are, I have received some outstanding mail art including these stamp sets from Keith Chambers' Dada Centennial Collection. Not available in any store they are a lovely achievement in homage to both stamps and dada if a person can pay homage to dada. That does sound like it…

Elsa von Freytag-loringhoven, long dead, sent me this instructional manual on how not to draw a cat as well as an invitation to friend this jolly Brooklyn realtor (done and done). Elsa's quotes are reprinted here for the benefit of those who, like me, have trouble seeing: "Why isn't Santa Fe in…

And here is the "rough beast in pram" himself! Wow!

At 7:05pm on March 28, 2017, Toni Hanner -- tonipoet said…

Hahahahahaha! Love the serendipitous "mistakes" --praxx becomes pram, and rough beast suddenly makes perfect, if scary, sense. Thanks for 'splaining!

At 3:22am on March 28, 2017, Toni Hanner -- tonipoet said…

David, thanks for the wonderful Mail Art postcard -- both sides are terrif! I am trying to figure out the reference -- I know the Yeats poem, but "in Praxx" stumps me....what am I missing?
