I got Fiked, and I liked it. Thank you for the amazing envelope + letter, documentation, echinacea & psychedelia. I will post your piece to "Envelopes" group asap. The "World Peace through World Trade" 8-cent stamp made me cry for the Rust Belt. Sending snail mail batch around mid-month when the new Halloween stamps drop on the 11th Oct. ⍣ <-- Wittgenface.

Really enjoyed receiving your cool art--thanks so much!  It will be a little while till I can reply because I'm in the middle of a few projects so please don't think I forgot.  My husband Dave (also on this site) liked your work so much he posted it on IOUMA Facebook.  I too am sad about Steve Dalachinsky--today, September 29th, is actually his birthday...

Greetings, Fike. Yes, I've been with IUOMA for years — still prefer real mail, though.

Good to be back in touch since the old days when I was in Huntington! Keep watching the mail--I predict something coming your way...

I guess I do. Or at least, that's wot the clicky-button said on the previous page. from which [by clicking] 'I' got 'here'. [virtually].

Currently [re]reading all of William Gibson, at least the novels and a wonderful read he is! Taking a break with Thomas M. Disch's "334" over these past few nites, charging up the ol' memory B4 lites out each eve. Richard Brautigan awaits also.

Soon we start ripping out the floor of the computer 'den' at strangulensis Manor.

If you like to use old US postage on your mail art envelopes...

Posted on October 4, 2014 at 5:01pm 0 Comments

Karl Anderson's a good source who I've used for several orders over the past few years.

His current list and very detailed information on requirements for ordering from him are found at:

http://www.andersonstampandcoin.com/Pricelist.pdf

Currently, he is selling mint US 3-cent stamps from the 1940's-50's for very little over face value.

Y'r Ol' Bud,     Fike
