Trashpo books from Diane Keys, Nancy Bell Scott, and vintage from Lesley SA

Perhaps this delicate tissue-paper book from Nancy Bell Scott is more than "trash", it is a wonderful collection of tisse pages and yarn that tantalizes the sense of touch! And many, many thanks for ALL the white tissue paper! Wonderous materials for future boekies! Thank you, Nancy! xx

Trashpo book or "vintage" altered pages from Lesley, lower left. Beautiful boekie and came in the mail along with trashpo from DK, lower right is trashpo book, upper TWO trashpo art-in-the-mail also from DK!

Lesley's delicate pages and drawings...almost too vintage to turn. Using great care here, and truly an inspired work of art. Thank you, Lesley...(some Number 9B graphite pencils from Paris in the mail to you soon ;-)

And a few details of Diane's trashpo book...dynamic and full of rich textures!

Papers and plastic and stickers and receipts and wonderful fun items...

'love every page! thank you, Queen of Trashpo! xx

Yes yes yes!!! Fantastic photos Katerina! I'm so envious right now. Someone once sent me a package with cheese from France, through normal mail. It took one week to arrive and I had to pick it up at the PO. The faces when they saw me! It smelled absolutely terrible, but it was delicious.

Yes, Cherry blossom, I am back in Greece. The trip was marvelous and the cheeses of Normandy (and apple brandy - Calvados) were marvelous, too. I bought a few boxes of cheeses, but by the time I arrived in London, things were beginning to...ewww. Well, the cheese was still perfectly good, so mail artist Andy in London got some gifts ;-) 'Was unable to send smelly cheese to Bifidus...another time, perhaps!
