Imagine Peace: Add & Pass Sheets Stuffed with Mail Art Glamsters!

 
Imagine Peace a&p sheet from Moreno Menarin (Italy). Includes Kerosene (Canada)
& Sticker Dude (NYC USA). Stamped 2019
 
 
January 6, 2020 - This seems an exceptionally appropriate time to share a FAB  trove of completed add & pass sheets sent to us by Moreno Menarin in Vicenza, Italy. The sheets - very diverse in content - are built around the Imagine Peace theme, which veteran networkers are likely to have encountered before (the theme, that is, not the specific art). We know Moreno Menarin as one of the enthusiastic supporters of E's Fan Club. We welcome our Italian friend to Glam Faction!

When we opened the two envelopes that contained these sheets, we though we had stumbled upon colorized versions of "underground" mail art from the 1970s. This gives you a good idea what it looked like. Perhaps because longtime European mail art stars have contributed generously to these wonderful sheets.

Yet all these sheets were coined and decorated in the 21st century. In fact, most seemed to have been "re-mixed" or "retro-fitted" (new material added) in 2019, about a decade after they had come to rest, probably with Moreno, who decided to send them packing. We are glad he did!
