Some stamps that me and Vittore Baroni in Italy collaborated on a couple of years ago.

Michael. hello; I used to have cards printed by Giraffe Cards and was very happy with them but when  I realized that I finished with lots of unused  cards I decided it was cheaper to print them myself as I needed them.

Giraffe cards used to do a promotion in Jan/ Feb or thereabouts. But tha t was ages ago.

Nice one Terry.  Met David once in London when he came to my homage/ celebration of the work of the late Michael Scott- before he flew off to Oz. We came to Sydney back in 2008 for a lovely 2 weeks of culture and sight seeing before staying with my wife's auntie in the Blue Mountains. A memorable trip of a lifetime!

 For VOLUME 2015 in Sydney, the pigeon in the photo flew in from Trafalgar Square (yes, David Dellafiora, the figure to the right is Jim Anderson, jailed in London during the Oz trials for leading the English astray....L is me, to me R is Denis Mizzi, Pataphysicalist Metamorphosiser).

Hey I'm looking to start mail art swapping again but prefer UK as it's very expensive posting around the world :( I'm from York, UK!

WElcome Terry.  Yes, I guess those stamps were ping ponging much like all of mail art that enjoys some degree of collaboration. I can't remember how many backs and forths I have exchanged with Vittore but it must be into the hun dreds by now after 35 years or so.

so them stamps are a pinging and a ponging between UK and Italy?  a kind of politicalatelic union

Comment by Michael Leigh on April 27, 2017 at 7:29am

Welcome Carl. I never even knew about the Twitter Art exhibition Andy - did you go?  Occasionally political artistamps but mostly surreal , though politics is a bit surreal too these days Jade!  Yes, Bradford- Global Mail was a good publication - I have a few copies in my archive.
