It is Autumn and England is grey and damp.  That's part of its charm, I suppose, but it can be a little wearing after a while; so when the postie struggles to deliver a great slab of Italian mail art he is the most popular person in my world.  This week he delivered a monster.  i don't think I have ever had such an envelope arrive unannounced on my doorstep and it is going to take a week or two to digest its contents.This week I received a parcel from Roberto Formigoni.Here are a few scans of…See More

Hi MAry Ann, thanks for writing so witty and nicely! ( my adjectives are not so many!) When your envelope arrived I was quite absorbed by your wonderful creation of the blue-white-black lettering, so now I hurried and took a straight look and discovered Monty Python! I am really a fan of the ministry of silly walks and the sketch with the parrot and... and..

You are right: I feel like a very happy bunny! (even when our heating is gone and a new one is not to be seen. we live in an apartment in an old high house; the water is only handwarm, but the temperatures outside are rather cold! But I still can have a hot water bottle!)

With fat warm hugs

Hi Mary Ann, your idea of making a booklet out of the envelopes is real convincing ! I had thought of something like that, but my box turns out to be rather big, so that there is a lot of space also for the envelopes, otherwise it would look a bit deserted. 

Fat hugs Charlotte

Thanks Mary Anne, i like stickers of all kind and i use them on Add/Pass, too.

Just in case you want to consider "what next?", come by the "Bananas" group (yes, there is a group for going bananas) and we can start an exchange for November 18...International Banana Appreciation Day :-)

Hi Mary Anne.

I think I have misunderstood what the “birthday box” is.  I wanted to send only one item for the box, not create/send one to each person who is also participating.  Can you help me understand the project better?  I normally do 1:1 exchanges, so it’s very likely I’m not quite with the program.  Thanks, and remind me again what the deadline is.

Another reason I’m confused is I saw Maria in Athens say she was receiving some pieces, then I saw Kat was too - then I got a list from Cascadia Artpost of participants so far - with addresses.  I don’t do multiples using a printer at the moment, so not set up for that.......

Can you please explain?  Sorry to be such a Neanderthal.  Debra

Hi Mary Ann, THANKS  SOOO much! You are the VERY best! The address thing is absolute tiring for me, but now with your help it has come to an end ! I really hope that my envelope for you arrives safely! FAT HUGS

This oddity arrived a week or so ago.  I nothing of it other than, giving the recent posts about the presence of money in the mail art universe, I thought it might be of some interest.  All the 'artwork' is copies; for example the 'hello Mary' collage has my name written on a label stuck over the original.  The 'dedication' at the top of that sheet is also a label stuck over another name.  None of it inspires me to take advantage of the offer and send money for the book but I give the…

Blog number 15 - art critisism for beginers . . .

Posted on October 24, 2019 at 9:18am 1 Comment

Last night I saw a picture pinned up near someone's desk. 

It was a marvel.  A4. There was a great spray of oil gushing up over a desert landscape.  An ecological comment?  Energy. The violence of a new discovery perhaps and also the excitement.  How had the effect been achieved?  Black ink sprayed over a semi abstract landscape?  Perfect composition.  The hand of an undiscovered master?  I went closer - took a better look . . .

A rather poor colour photocopy of a photograph -…

The good people of the Hannah Hoch's Fan Club Group here on IUOMA have a little project underway and nearing something like a deadline.  It would be nice (for us at least( if a few more people joined the party; perhaps (I am a Brit after all) a few more Europeans to even up the score? 

A list of participants can be found on the group posting if you care to drop by.  Don't be shy.  It may even introduce you to a whole new world . . .
