Barcode Mail Art

Barcodes. They are everywhere, but surprisingly not used that often in mail art. 

When I received this piece of Barcode mail art (named 'Variation on a barcode Op. 99') thanks to Dean, Artist in Seine, I wanted to post it in the IUOMA Barcode Mail Art group. However... I couldn't find any Barcode group!.. That's why and how this group started here.

You can post your received or sent Barcode Mail Art here if you wish, too.

Update 11 February 2016: Also colour test print art is welcomed!

And the "Eternal Network" sticker is by Picasso Gaglione :-)
