Just finished reading "The Englishman that Posted Himself and Other Objects"- it is a great look into Extreme Mail Art- he mailed a live dog, a turnip with the address scratched in the root, and addressed cards with pictures of the intended recipient.  All of this in 1898-ish.  A great read that has inspired me to be braver in what I ship!

Thiis is EXTREME because it is one of only five party plates that Helen amyes sent out back in July,2010. I had "lost" it and never scanned it, so when I read in an earlier post here that Helen sent out only four of these: to Ruud, to Oh Boy, to Vittore Baroni, and to me...well, I started a search...that finally proved successfulafter 6 months! Rare item, rare art, and rare that it came through the mail just like that: as a party plate! Thank you, Helen!

From Virgy (Virginia Milici in Italy) A rare 45rpm record painted and sent in an envelope. Virgy had a great mail art project some time ago with records that were "recycled".

Received this a couple of days ago - from Fasteyes - both sides decorated with Steampunkish goodies sewn inside! She had cut a cardboard glove for the interior to give it structure and the ink stamps and everything came through perfectly.

The 'ball' was sent to a television show (national TV) where is was shown by the moderator. So that was quite a success. The part of the telephone was sent to Belgium. It is in the collection of Guy Bleus (see
