This arrived in my mailbox this past weekend. It was tied with baker's twine and sealed with coppery sealing wax. Separate panels are hinged along one edge to flip open as pages of a book. Completely amazing and so exciting to receive from someone unknown to me until that moment. After a little investigation, I discovered she is part of the PAINTING+DRAWING=MAIL ART group (which I have now joined). Part of their mission is to find and connect mail artists who use painting and drawing in their mailart. I draw and paint a little bit, so I'm guessing she somehow found me that way. I will ask her. Thank you, April.
