Sub-Real Alchemy (David Aponte) sent a mail art card with map...

Oh, yes, this is an interesting beauty of a mail art card.

David Aponte created a very minimal piece actually,

but by adding the map fragment, got my curiosity up as to its location:

"Lottsville"...and "Bear Lake" , that's PA and right near the border with the state of New York! 

Nice stamping on the flip side, too:

Thank you David!

I love using maps... I was always good with them... one learns a lot about a culture and history based on looking at maps...

Google maps knows ALL :-)

I so enjoy hunting up the whereabouts of map fragments.

Very nice mail art indeed, David!

very cool... yes that is PA/NY boarder...

I'll confirm that, Jim. Western NY at the PA border. North of that is Buffalo. These days Jamestown likes to claim Natalie Merchant (10,ooo Maniacs) as well as Lucille Ball. Nice m-a too, BTW IMHO.

The map is indeed a section of the New York/Pennsylvania State line - kind of SSE of Buffalo.  Lake Chautauqua, Jamestown (Lucille Ball's hometown) &  the Allegany Indian Reservation give it least for this former Upstate New Yorker...
