Thinking about Mail-Art

Bernard Suits' book "The Grasshopper" analyses play which many would think is a facet of mail-art. What other thoughts do you have concerning mail-artSee More

hi Fike, i have received your fab mail...thank you a lot! today i mailed an envelope  for you, hope you get it soon...happy weekend!

Hi Ficus,

Happy Monday to You!

Something Orange is on it's way to you!

Went out today.

  • Happy Friending File! Will look forward to your mailing...happy New year *!*

Oh, you keep sterling records, that's clear from what you sent me. You could send me your Leftwich contents from 2004 if you'd like, though, and not worry anymore about whether you responded. I could reply within, say, the current decade.

That's it! The envelope looks 100% not opened, so you fooled my eyes completely. This we *can* blame on age, for starters. More than once a mail-art envelope turned out (say, a year later) to contain something I'd not realized at first. Love when that happens.

Say, Fike, your fascinating cards+note arrived, thanks a lot. Glad you liked my envelope--but you forgot to open it. Check it out. Asemic! You'll blame the oversight on your age, so I will too. Won't you post your Picasso? N.B.

I suppose intuition feels closer to what I was expressing.

I have a blog???!

Posted on July 14, 2018 at 12:34pm 0 Comments

I guess I do. Or at least, that's wot the clicky-button said on the previous page. from which [by clicking] 'I' got 'here'. [virtually].

Currently [re]reading all of William Gibson, at least the novels and a wonderful read he is! Taking a break with Thomas M. Disch's "334" over these past few nites, charging up the ol' memory B4 lites out each eve. Richard Brautigan awaits also.

Soon we start ripping out the floor of the computer 'den' at strangulensis Manor.

If you like to use old US postage on your mail art envelopes...

Karl Anderson's a good source who I've used for several orders over the past few years.

His current list and very detailed information on requirements for ordering from him are found at:

Currently, he is selling mint US 3-cent stamps from the 1940's-50's for very little over face value.

So you like fractals, eh?
