Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
1952
My Website (without http://):
http://www.jeffberner.com
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I started around age 11. I loved getting mail, which was rare.

I used powdered gold or silver poured over wet fountain pen ink to write addresses, then gently blowing away the rest & holding the envelope over a light bulb to dry. The metallic writing set up dry, embossed.

I have correspondents all over the USA, Europe, and a few in the Philippines and China. Mostly friends or other artists—mostly both.

I have a very large collection, to say the least.
