Visiting Guy Bleus in 1985

historic photo by Guy Bleus made in 1985 when I first visited him in Wellen.

Typical Dutch Postage


These are the Dutch Postage stamps for abroad (International). They are quite expensive these days (1,36 euro for one)

Outgoing to Ryosuke Cohen - Japan


Another envelope goes out to Ryosuke Cohen in japan. I just received Brain Cell #985 and the tempo of the issues is strionfg and steady.End of this year I expext the number 1000 if everything goes well and Ryosuke has the strength and energy and resources to keep this going.


What's next?

This is one of the oldest blogs I have. It is also a wonderful archive of mail-art that came in over the years and was sent to me in the past decades. The digital world works fascinating. So many old mail-art can be veiwed now. On the other hand, not much is being sent out these days since the postal cost of international mail-art is extreme......

So we all wonder, what is next. Will we be able to send out more mail-art. A new generation is taking over and learns about mail-art online, and starts to send out traditional mail-art as a reaction and documents the process online. New archives are being created while the older archives are brought into museums and libaries.

The wooden Cow



For the mail-art Cow project I was tempted to get this cow. Haven't done it yet because as a postcard the postage needed to send it out would be quite high.

Still a fascinating object to do something with it. Saw it at Dille and kamille store here in the Netherlands, so it is available for those who want to give it a try......

Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I like communication, art, paper, painting and concepts. The ideal combination for doing Mail-Art. Worked with rubberstamps as a child and started sending out letters as soon as I could write. Discovered that it was called mail-art in 1980. Have been discovering ever since and in the last years also promoting this free cultural exchange.

Mail to Ryosuke Cohen - June 2017

Posted on June 10, 2017 at 9:39am 2 Comments

Latest mail to Ryosuke Cohen:

Just to keep the flow going and thank him for another Brain Cell I received.

He sent out #981 now, so in 19x10 = 190 days the expected #1000 might come out. It is June now, so end of this year we might see the historical issue of a very long-time project.…

Nog van Harte  met je  verjaardag, gister! 

En bedankt voor al je mooie mail art! Ik ben wat laat met posten/bloggen/antwoorden. In ieder geval staat je 'Don't forget that bit' nu eindelijk daar geblogd.

Gelukkige Verjaardag Ruud!

Yes, I somehow was transformed into Bug Post when I had only requested that a beetle enquire on my behalf to find out if the real Bug Post continues to survive and thrive.  It is a crushing responsibility to now be Bug himself, when I feel far more like Debug.  Am sending about 70 words for your IUoMA compendium......what is it?  Thirty years?  You and your project bridge the milleniums, from pencil to electrode:  Updating the Network's potential for meaningful continuity.  Paragraph 1.  Put that in your upcoming book.
