Talking about masterpieces, I forgot to mention the fantastic poster of the Exhibition, crafted by Dark wall.
Many people have already sent their contribution to the show. Posted below you will find a sneak peek into the growing and outstanding collection, something for you to nibble on.
Dean Marks (France):…Continue
Dean has sent me some mail-art while I was in France. Since there was a flea market coming up that weekend I though it was a perfect opportunity to get some good cash. I was sure of the success of this project, as the piece contained some rare british mail-art omens, as well as a unique "Manoir aux Visons en Alsace" address.…Continue
No return address on the card but I am pretty sure this is Lisa's beautiful calligraphy. I hope I am right! If I am not, well, it is still a fantastic handwriting, painted on a thick book cover. Another "give it away" is the line about Marie Antoinette (about as much help as aspirin would have been to Marie Antoinette). I might be wrong here again but it looks…Continue
A beautiful and delicate boekie from Alicia. I am not sure what kind of paper she has used, is it a kind of rice paper? It would fit the organic theme very well. Tea at the farm on a late spring evening, surrounded by chicken, or as Vizma would say, chooks :-)) I like chooks better. Alicia also included Japanese text, a piece of sewing pattern, and to wrap up…Continue
Plus one arty slide :-)) They look great Val, thank you for sending!!…Continue
Le Manoir aux Visons is very happy to answer Dark wall's call for the first MinXus-LynXus performance score. The exhibition took place here in Wakoshi at the Manoir, May 11th 2012, 7.15pm-7.30pm local time and was a flying success.…Continue
Dean has sent me so many great pieces and I am so behind with blogging... I wanted to be the first one to crack the code, but I think several people have done so before me. Corked SOS, of course :-))…Continue
A great little book from Karen Champlin, thank you very much!!…Continue
I don't really know how to start this blog, because no blog can say enough to do justice to this work. Cheryl's Book about Books is an absolute beauty. It won't reveal all its secrets at first glance. You will have to dig in and explore to find out more about it.…Continue
Fantastic etegami from Dosankodebbie. You cannot see it from the photo but the gel pen colors are nicely glittery. And the Japanese twist: the outline of the onions was painted with powdered matcha tea! Thank you so much Debbie, thanks to you my etegami collection is growing and looking absolutely gorgeous!…Continue
Fresh dispatch from the Queen of Trash(po)! A fantastic trashbook. Don't you love this cover? It's my favorite part of the book. Along with the binding.…Continue
Two new arrivals at the Manoir aux Visons with these envelopes from Torma and Janine. Gorgeous envelope from Torma, and his newspaper collages are always a hit. Janine's mail as well will put a smile on your face for the rest of the day and…Continue
I think this envelope got returned to Frieder, because it was included in another envelope and they both had cancellation marks. It's a beauty. And I love the stamps on the back as well.
The card is a cut up painting…Continue
This was a lucky mail day with two envelopes from Katerina. An authentic piece of magic flying carpet, perfectly matching the tall greek blue grass. The second envelope came with the new Warhol stamp along with a Warhol…Continue
