Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
To mail or not to mail: I send mail to share dispatches out in the field, Istanbul via San Francisco, collector of information, moments of thought, connect the dots from all my travels, follow trails, forge paths, inform, learn, fill mail boxes with worlds beyond reach. The reasons are endless and timeless.

Heartbeats: Journalism, writing, books, libraries, passports, air mail, aeroplanes, linguistics, ancient ruins, cryptography, history, vintage, old magazines, calligraphy, sea turtle conservancy, naval fleets, U.S. History, small country Americana towns, forest trees, photography, desert dunes, postcards, agents, intelligence, pin ups, spies, vamps, pulp fiction, cinema, genealogy, family trees, Turkey, Israel, Europe, Armenia, Greece, Slavs, Morocco, crusades, war history, empires, heraldry, obscure nobility, vinyl, ambassadors, diplomats.

Special attention paid to philately and vintage.

What sorts of mail do you like?

• BONUS POINTS! If you send me old film negatives and/or old photographic projector slides or matchbooks, you will receive a very special personalized postal treat in return.♥ 

• I'm open to almost all art forms. I never expect a reply. My work is generally not geared toward grave offense, but I take note if you are offended/upset by a particular theme and will not include.♥ 

• A lot of my correspondence art will include philately, U.S. history, Americana, curious women, Europe, Turkish, news, newspapers, current/historic events, dispatches from my travels, espionage, 'I spy', linguistics, translation, literature, journalism, adventurers, glitter, sequins, beauty, vamps, astrology, Nostradamus, the 1930s - 1970s, geology, explorers, aeroplanes, cinema, berets, lipstick, eyes, ancient ruins, maps and geography, war time, assassinations, cults, vintage, and the unique, weird and random.♥ 

• Please be advised: I cannot guarantee a return/pass along of Add & Pass, Chain Letters, and/or Photocopied items. Don't be heartbroken. They sometimes clog the cogs.♥

Happy new little one, though I'm not sure when it arrived. Maybe not so new. In any case, take your time getting mail out, to state the obvious, as little ones take up a lot of one's time. But someday, you'll have wee hands helping you make mail art. My grand girl is very into it these days.

Love that old handwriting. Nobody writes like that anymore, eh?

I am interested A s l i, although i probably wouldn't be able to attend many meetings since I live quite a ways from Portland. I would love to know more. Thanks!

Hi! I saw your post on the PDXCC on Toni's comment. I would love the info on the group. I am fairly new to mail art, but I love the outlet it gives me! 

Would love to exchange if interested. :o)

Do you think they may be undercover agents?

Not only I have two small supermarkets authentically Turkish within some ten minutes in the bus but a Turkish restaurant right at the corner of my road. We here in London are multicultural which I hope will remain so. Now that I remember there is another near by too, and would you believe it? a Turkish barber! I cannot imagine what is the difference with an English one.

I have been eating aubergines everyday during my holidays in Catalonia and there I came upon a recipe for a dish from Italy which as soon as I try it I will send to you with the appraisal.First I have to get to my local Turkish supermarket were they have the best veg and fruit.

I will have to do a picture of the dish or it would not be mail art.

At 7:52pm on October 19, 2016, Mail Art Martha said…

Hi;Turkish Agent. I am so thrilled to have a spy as a friend, wow!
Although I am surprised that there are not any Turkish dishes in the list of your interests. I love anything with patlican in it. 

I agree with your political non commitment, that is why I campaign for an independent London, with lots of Turkish restaurants in it.

Thank you so much for the wonderful card!  The bookcover looks so much like the Church of the Transfiguration on 29th Street in New York.
