Another envelope...this from Mim Golub Scalin with "mim'imal" inside!

Mim has done an amazing job of recycling MY envelope to her, so with the postage sticker from the USA, I still get those Greek stamps (which are new issue and which i did not have before) Thanks Mim!

And what about this "taped" card?

Who will find the "meaning" for "Beyond Don't"?

Don't go Beyond....or...what exists beyond "Don't"?

Beautiful tape accents, too, Mim! thank you so much!

It has to be a very old Atlas, Mim. but I am sure there are so many that it has no "value" money has "worth" to those of us who appreciate the "place". I am sure your Spanish teacher will love the map of Spain, as I treasure this of the "Balkans"!

"Pera" was the name given by the Greeks to that part of the "new Istanbul" where all the foreigners lived and worked. Across on the Asian side they had the name: "Scutari" it is Uskadar. And by 1922 with the New Republic of Turkey, all the area became "Istanbul" not Constantinople ;-)

I shall keep the original page , and photocopy it to cut it up for collage! Many, many thanks!

I noticed that Pera is separately noted from Stamboul. I thought you'd like this page. I can't believe that I cut up an Atlas that was so old. oh my. I cut out 1" circles from the pages I had (given to me by a friend in France) to use on my Skull Appreciation Day entry. I'll finish it this week and post images. Maybe I should have framed the pages? I saved Spain for my teacher of español. Glad you enjoyed receiving the map and your envelope and my mail art. I think "beyond don't" is so open to personal interpretation.

Must add that Mim also enclosed a most vintage map of the Balkans, with only southern Greece "Independent" from the "Empire Ottoman", so the map is after 1821 but before 1912. The Atlas could be more than 100 years old! Very vintage, thank you, Mi!

Close-up of my town: "Salonique"

and insert maps of...find Troy? and "Stamboul"!
