Silhouette Add & Pass from E

The other day in the mail, an Add & Pass that originated with "E" arrived via Theresa Williams ... I've added 2 John Lennons, a facsimile butler and bull in a frame (the original having been added to a Svenja Wahl collage that she was kind enough to send to me), and an inspirational quote about puzzles and pieces and being your own world ... a surrealistic touch if ever…

NEWS FLASH: The Queen does not dress down even when peering out of ordinary housing

This isn't Buckingham Palace, right Dean? But I don't know, maybe the Palace signs are hidden underneath the glued-on wooden fork that is plastered against the house. The Queen doesn't even look surprised by the fork. There seems to be a little consternation on her face, but I hear that isn't unusual : 

This is from Dean Marks's "Mail Art on the Road" series, of course,…

Leopard art+ from Janine Weiss

Two of the three pieces in Janine's anarchic-looking envelope feature leopards, among other things, including a talkative and/or brave bird. These are delightful: 

She also included another collage, more abstract and yet still we can recognize a creature in the corner. At first I thought a dog, but now am wondering if it's another wild cat in a rasta hat. In any case,…

Amazing asemic threading from Rebecca Resinski

She did this on a page of text, so that the threads are covering, or almost covering, every word. It's a fine, beautiful, and mysterious piece. This is the second time I've been so fortunate to be richly surprised by mail art from Rebecca in my mailbox. Thank you very much, Rebecca…
