Well, first the lovely watercolor painted envelope from Heleen de Vann, with portrait of Hannah:

see, even she has "TIME" ( barely) for mail art:

and were is the BLUE?

ah, inside was the BLUE...(and ORANGE)  birdie! An original watercolor ATC:

Also, Heleen did some good research and sent info about Hannah Hoch,

and the German postage stamp in her honor:

a fine artist indeed!

Thank you, Heleen,this is very special!

And thanks for making the Hannah Hoch fan club group :-)

A pdf, especially for Res, with both the orginal German text and translation into English you can find in the group, and also here.

I translated it from a German text which accompanied the in 1989 issued stamp named 'The Journalists'.

Hope it is readable:

It was a fast delivery...perhaps the Greek airlines had extra flights

direct to Thess from Amsterdam lately :-) Come for a visit, Heleen?

No stamp page that I saw...

And Heleen, can you print the pages of info at the Hannah Hoch group,

my ol' scanner isn't too advanced for such things. thanks!

By the way, did I forget to include the Hannah Höch stamp page, which should be in the inside of the envelope, too??

Comment by Heleen de Vaan on October 8, 2015 at 9:07am

Thank you for posting, Katerina! 

And wow, much honour to the dutch and greek mail, they've been amazingly fast to bring you Hannah Höch! As I've put this mail in the mailbox last monday and you received it already wednesday!?! (And the dutch post forgot to cancel the two dutch stamps, so whenever you get to NL and you feel the urge to mail something, you can re-use these stamps for postage :-) )
