I wonder if there might be enough interest in Gyotaku, Japanese fish printing, to have a group or maybe a sub-group of Ruud Janssen's Rubber Stamping group?Y'r ol' Bud, FikeContinue

Surrealist Society

I was turned on to Dali and Max Ernst in my 20s and that was it for me. Ever since, I’ve been a committed Surrealism fan and Surrealist artist. Though Surrealism covers a wide range of media, tones and styles, it has an unmistakable vibe for those who resonate with it. Dark, playful, wise, sad, mystifying, transcendent or heartbreakingly beautiful, Surrealism taps into our dreams and our buried feelings, reminding us of the strange complexity of what it means to be human. Please share your favorite Surrealist art and Surrealist mail art!See More

Thanks for the mail, Fike, hope you are not overeating the polar bear liver! Like pennyroyal, I hear it can be toxic... I am finally getting caught up with mail after being away for a couple weeks. See you in the mail.

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
