The Postcard Recycling Kit

One of my oldest zine ideas (first featured in a now obsolete zine about postcards called PostScript) has been recycled into a new looseleaf zine: The Postcard Recycling Kit. Includes crafty postcard projects as well as postcard labels to upcycle any artwork, waste cardstock, or any other item you choose! More pics & further info…

Received from Mim, USA--Buddhist Philosophy

Mail Received - Val Mark Herman

Val's sent me a print, that goes well with E's card posted previously, in terms of colour and, possibly theme. Which half of  the Chinese symbol is it, the Ying or the Yang? Why only half, anyway?

Mail Received - E

A simple card, presumably a page from a some sort of book, printed and embossed from E. E's mail art often has an aura of mystery to me. Who is existential Fluxus X, possibly a distant relative of mine? And XY, is that a response…

Mail Received - Jon Foster

Hello Jon, Hanks for this treat! I love the pop art style card. I had to check up on Rutherford B. Hayes, and learned something about the 19th American president. Who says mail art is not educational!…

Mail Received - Stefanie Blake

Stefanie sent me this cool painted disk pr palette. It is very sturdy and a pleasure to behold. I told her that my son, when he was about three or four used to paint and collage disks of all kinds. He claimed that they had magic powers. He made one for me to put above the bed, so it would protect me. Powerful stuff! Thank you,…

Mail Received - Katerina Nikoltsou

Festive greetings from an Erni fan! The telltale signs are the chocolate gold bear wrapping and a crushed found object a bottle cap? Plus cheerful Santa and reindeer! Great company to enjoy!

XX Jones: Peak Mail

In the middle of Hong Kong there are peaks that no one else can see except for XX Jones.  And on the back it reads; "Said So!"

Thank you Mrs. Jones, but don't peak too soon.
