as one so afflicted, here's a group for people who use books for mail art purposes or even just labor under the yoke of book addiction, those yearning masses who amass books intended for reading but which, mostly just pile up.See More

"That green inked stamp was made by Stampland (Picasso Gaglione and Darlene Domel) from a photo of George Maciunas, Fluxus guy (he died young from pancreatic cancer though he never smoked or drank). Check him out on Wikipedia!"

"Yes, but no doubt a lousy job on my part. They looked like photocopies (the paper can't have been good enough for one thing) and get used very rarely. Those in your photo look exquisite. Acrylic transfer turned out somewhat better for me than…"

Loved the wonderful art Fike--many thanks!

Dear Fike, Your envelope with charming letter and three beautiful pictures -- Fluorite, Deep Dream Flowers, and Fish from Deep Dream Crik -- arrived! I love them. Posting to Envelopes group.

I had to go see the eye doctor on Main Street in the Cascadia Diorama after viewing this envelope...

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...

Wonderful letter in the mail! Thank  you

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
