Big Mail from Imelda Wubben in The Netherlands

Some months back I asked if anyone was interested in trading something larger. Imelda was interested in trading. A day ago I got this lovely piece in the mail. Now I have to make something just as good to send back to her.

 

If anyone would be interested in joining us, let us know.

 

Thanks Imelda.…

Clouds' illusions - from Katerina Nikoltsou

Bad films and music won't last very long in Katerina's house. She found a great way to recycle them into fantastic mail art and to give them a new and better life.

The Caption and Tenniel

I have thrown Zeus into the mix because he just hates, hates, hates to be left out. …

Please help me find the mystery Mail Artist

It is very pretty as it is, but it is very heavy, and I'm not sure I should open it or admire it as it is.

The post mark said it was mailed from Hungry, but I do not know any Mail Artist there.  Who do you think sent it?  Should I open it more?

Could this be another Erni package that he had his Uncle in Hungry send me?

The big…

Captain Balloon Glasses Says...

...Up, up and away!

I received this a few days ago from Dean Marks and he has truly outdone himself this time. Part Jules Vern, part Terry Gilliam, with a bit of kitsch thrown in for good measure, it is a stroke of mail art genius. Words cannot describe it, so I shall let the photos speak for themselves:

Needless to say, "Captain Balloon Glasses" now holds a place…

The Purgatorio - a rare Bifidus Jones

Bifidus has not been around for ages and I miss him, so I begged him to send me something. He very kindly granted my wish. I've been wondering where he could possibly have gone, and I hope this is not him sending me the answer from purgatory! So I would like to see this piece as a reference to Dante's Purgatorio instead, with Bifidus finding himself somewhere…
