Toni Hanner (tonipoet): Feeling Wordy

More than a feeling, a statement of "You tell Us".  Such a versatile Mail Artist.  Always a wonderful surprise from Toni.  I'm a fan and inspired.

Thank you Toni

All Aboard the Kalakala! It's the END OF THE CITY!!

I think this might be my first mail art piece received from Mike Dyar of San Francisco. Anyway, it was a little bit startling and wondrous to receive in my post box. It's very minimalist—a testament to what one can do with a simple shingle of corrugated cardboard—and yet...sort of holds significance for me.

Artists' Book by Frieder Speck

I love how this wonderful book by Frieder arrived in a very modest envelope. The surprise was all the greater when I found what was inside: an accordion-style book with hard covers, size:13 x 16cm, monoprinting, drawings and poems (written on a typewriter). Love it!…

Horsing Around with Carina's Horse Mail

Super cool self-made envelope arrived from Carina Granlund in Finland, filled with cute and humorous fare. She included two newspaper comic strips from a Scandinavian newspaper. They appear to be annotated with dates (1956 and 1957) so perhaps they are clippings from a more classic era of cartooning!…

"New Luck Powder" Postcard is Over the Moon

This "anonymous" postcard arrived providing me with much delight. By the style and humor I'ma gonna say this is a David Stafford creation. Unfortunately, it looks like the postal machinery has once again altered a piece of mail art from the artist's original intention...whatever chaise or tuffet or…

Incoming from Toni

This beautiful blue birdy showed up in my mail box from Toni Hanner.  My youngest thinks it's beautiful too.  Inside was very native inspired, with a vintage photo of Seattle.  If you can see inside the envelope there is a slip of paper - almost like a fortune in…

Incoming from Martha

Lovely postcard from Mail art Martha. Thanks so much. I think the driver of this truck is just wonderful. I didn't take a photo of the other side, but she drew me a dog with brown patches, a picket fence with roses, and my favorite, feet with socks and sandals.  Thanks again…
