It takes less than 24 hours in the mail: sent 12 April...arrived 13 April ;-)

Art envelope with colourful stamp and stampings, and inside:

Lovely print with postage stamp addition:

100 years since the Freedom of Ioannina,

Greek women carry arms supplies across the mountains to the troops.

Perfect, William! Yes we can be "mail carriers" too :-)

well, isn't that what letter carriers do - walk mail over to someone's  house? :)

The Rules of Mail Art states: there are no rules :-)

Perhaps we could "walk it over"...

but this was not "walked over" as we see from the 72 euro cent Greek domestic postage,

the "train" went through the Hellenic Post :-)

Love the one cent stamp.  But isn't she supposed to be underwater?

So this brings up the classic art question; Is Mail Art Mail Art if someone walks it over to your place and pops it in your mailbox?

Thanks for blogging.
