As you can see from the Inset Carina G's laughing horse was included in the mix, not once but dos, and, as I discovered somewhat tardily, also in the package was an Anthead Super Collabo-zine add-and-pass which…


Stamps from Borderline Grafix, Miguel Jimenez, Keith Chambers and Henry Denander

Posted on September 11, 2017 at 10:02pm 4 Comments

The allure of artistamps is irresistible. So many mini-canvasses, so many great graphic forms to riff on, plus perfs! Here are four different artist approaches beginning with Borderline Grafix's homage to the classic "good girl" graphics from the Golden Age of comics.…


D-Kult Insta-Blog

The stated purpose of the D-Kult Insta-blog was, as established during the IHOP Convention of 1953, to decrease intra-state tensions by getting the gratitude out in real time. It wasn't until June of this year that an app has allowed this to happen. We're extremely grateful to Bob Simms aka…


Incoming from Richard Canard

Posted on June 19, 2017 at 4:08pm 0 Comments

Richard Canard has sent me baskets of stuff, mostly wisdom strained through Richard's over-active spleen. (It is widely acknowledged that Mr. Canard and I suffer from the same splenetic condition). Richard quotes Gore Vidal: "There is no human problem which cannot be solved if people would simply…

And here is the "rough beast in pram" himself! Wow!

At 7:05pm on March 28, 2017, Toni Hanner -- tonipoet said…

Hahahahahaha! Love the serendipitous "mistakes" --praxx becomes pram, and rough beast suddenly makes perfect, if scary, sense. Thanks for 'splaining!

David, thanks for the wonderful Mail Art postcard -- both sides are terrif! I am trying to figure out the reference -- I know the Yeats poem, but "in Praxx" stumps me....what am I missing?
