Does anyone have contact details for Alan Turner? I can't find him on this website or on FB, though he might be on both, given neither surname or given name is rare.

This was sent on to me by a mail-art-friend, who said it was a bit too much for her, but she's so much more of an optimist than me! This is the best pandemic art I've seen so far because I love the bleakness of it, as well as agreeing with this particular take on it. This is heading for centre stage in my wall of mail art above my desk.

That's an amazing website, Jennifer.  My postcode is more populated, but more female — in the 2011 census, there were 63 people resident in CO7 9PU, of which 30 were male and 33 were female

What a surprise! Not exactly on my doorstep, but the SY of the postcode SY23 5JP is for Shrewsbury, where I live, close to the Welsh border. Mid Wales being something of a rural area, the SY postcodes go right across to the Welsh coast, including Pennant.

'SY23 5JP is a primarily residential and agricultural postcode ... In the 2011 census, there were 22 people resident in SY23 5JP, of which 14 were male and 8 were female. ... '

If nothing else, I'd like to tell him how much I love it!

Thanks! This is making sense ... it came to me from someone who's been making Field Study pieces for heaven knows how long.

Mail Art Martha might know where is Alan Turner, mail artist.

He was with Martha and the field Study gang at the Tate some years ago :

and Ruud sent to this address in 2009, also, I think?
