What a great surprise to see mail art from Nancy Bell Scott!
The envelope is all map, inside and out, and I loooove maps, and map fragments!
This is easy to recognize locations...it is China and Japan,
and an old map it is, printed before 1991, as there is the Soviet Union.
And detail of Sapporo on the Island of Hokkaido, where mail artist, Debbie Davidson lives...
Japan, another earthquake today...hope all are ok.
Inside there is a treasure house of mail art goodies! NOT "oddball items",but mail art omens! Yay!
Papers and a vintage photo and a trashpo boekie.
Enjoying this photo very much..who might she be?
What might she have been thinking when the photo was taken?
To whom did she give this photo? Someone in Lowell, Massachusetts, where it was made?
What a story ...if only the photo could speak.
And the boekie! A real gem:
Love turning the pages...turn...turn..turn:
Music to my ears!
Fantastic, NBS! Thank you so much,
