It saddens me that Volkswagen has decided to cease production of the Beetle. I have lived in San Francisco for nearly 30 years without owning a car. But I have fond memories of zipping around in that orange, 1973, VW Super Beetle during college. That car was so fast. I actually have dreams where I still drive that car. After a trip to Europe, I plastered the back of the car with stickers in various languages, mostly anti-nuclear. Some were even bought in the “gift shop”of an occupied building in Kiel, Germany.
To commemorate the Beetle with some mail art, I am mailing out an add-n-pass where the recipients can sticker a VW and, eventually, return these to me.
I you are a mail artist and would like to participate, you can even download a PDF version of the add-n-pass, print it out, add something, and then mail it to the next artist.
