These pieces all came the same week. They said they wanted stick together – who am I to argue?? Especially as they’re Mail Art Greats – MAG’s for short. AND of course, I’m into the new blog trend – Composites – I think they’re FAB!
Rod Summers arrived on Monday.
He has been sending me a series of works featuring The Secret Writings of Dr Moss Mure. They’re secrets trapped inside laminations. OF COURSE I’ve asked him who Dr Moss Mure is – don’t you want to know too?? But he’s sure being cryptic as only HotRod knows how!!! This time the good Doctor is life trapped in dreams. MAN! I know that one for sure.
Tuesday – the welcome arrival of John M Bennett and Jim Leftwich doing HOW. How? Its complex collage, overwritings, printings with the likes of Helen Bancroft and Virginia Tracy trying to escape the scotch tape.
AND!!!! My own JMB list – sorry everyone, this one is NOT for sale! What do poets do? MAN! – On Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and other days they write poems of course! In between they water the garden and do strenuous Fork Lints.
Wednesday – The safe arrival of Vittore Baroni’s A Piece of Sky with ONO Hole – collage for Yoko – I got 0/40. It’s a mysterious beaut for sure. AND the sun knew just where to shine :-)
Oh, and stamps, loads of GREAT Art Detox stamps including The Dada Vinci Codex (great!), The 999 Bandaged Man and the spooky Pale Network. Life being what it is currently, I’m a member – its also winter after all.
Thank you. FAB Mail Art Week from the MAG’s.
