over the past few weeks, these impersonal and nonsensical mass-produced postcards have been showing up from the enigmatic ML via Postable. there appears to be some geographical shenanigans going on (Bishkek? Belgium?)
not quite sure what to make of…Continue
these lovely splashes of blue look like a character from an unknown language. also, very cool that the official french postage stamp reads 'pour l'instant tout va bien...' - hakuna matata?
merci Helene; a bientot dans la boîte…Continue
in addition to the moth-riding mail art fairy, CMB sent along an 'O GINKGO LEAF' ATC and minizine.

Peter was kind enough to send me a (blank) Donald Evans greeting card, following up on his previous send. AND - another DADALand egg (which, post-documentation, was delicious and guilt free). also some beautifully stamped stuff, and a collection of stickers - …Continue

always great fun to open this packet; 5 sheets this time!Continue
a duo of socialish images; was that skull drawn for Paulo Teles? the envelope features a signature gato and a stamp that appears to be doing the visual equivalent of eavesdropping (spying?) on Los Kremlins.

La Vie Secrete des Mots 15 - un grand merci!
il me semble que ces machines a coudre attendent des rencontres fortuites avec des parapluies... ];-)
Laura sends a four-fold farewell; enjoy your time off and thanks for all the truly lovely art!
(not to mention the crazy postage!)--…Continue
not sure if DOD post is Adam's nom de plume...?
thanks for these odd somewhat morbid stamps, whatever the original source.
i've definitely had flashes of the sentiment expressed here, but hopefully it will be a long time before i start using these stamps in earnest. i must admit the image strikes me as creepy and goofily…Continue
because of its three dimensionality (note the transistor-boards on the backside (!)), the postman had to knock on my door to hand deliver Dean's latest multimedia creation.
no, he did not knock twice ];-)
A4 sheets with evidence of spray and offspring... some are rubber-stamped with M's address - perhaps these will end up as Add and Pass sheets...?
also included, some odd format spray/drips that may induce alteration/elaboration...?…Continue
during my recent visit to the capital, i had a blast at "Gertrude Stein and Pablo Picasso: the Invention of Language" at the Musee du Luxembourg. the exhibit (ongoing) features four works by Ray Johnson --Continue

this glossy collage makes me wonder what Bonnie's laugh sounds like...? love all the lines and texture on this card. and of course the envelope also contained a Bon-zine (Scream-zine, lucky 13!) as well as a generous 'Trick or Trash' bag filled with mail art omens...…Continue

The Foldi 25 arrived last month, along with two little bookies handcrafted with care in the queendom of Retailia. Chaos Mailarting? i must admit i was not aware of any other kind ];-)

thanks for all this and for the recent blog post too; see you in…Continue
