MaoMao

I'm just a cat that can read and write.

Paper, stamps, calligraphy, wax seals, inks, ephemera, maps, storytelling, luscious paint, printmaking, and little illustrations in the margins...I love them so much that I could eat them.

Literature major, bookbinder, embroiderer, ailurophile, sketchbook filler, collector of languages, shoestring vagabond (Beware! I have three passports, and I know how to use them...)

An eye for an eye.

I'm still looking for my mail ART soulmate.

I invest plenty of energy, earnestness, and effort in mail art. I know it's supposed to be non-precious, a rejection of bourgeois aesthetics, dada, punk, anti-beauty anti-art...but I can't help myself. If I'm going to do anything, I prefer to send stuff that is made from scratch, with care, by hand. I often spend a whole day on one piece...

That said, if you send a quick piece of craft store scrapbooking ready-mades, you will receive the same.

But send me an eye, by god, and you will get an eye. *winks*

I am so sad to hear this though we never got to exchange mail. She was so talented.

Personals Ad by Allen Ginsberg

[I love that in this original version of the poem, there was an address at the bottom, and it was Allen Ginsberg's personal postal address. I sometimes wonder if this post box still exists, or if they had to cancel it because the new owners keep getting mail from people touched by Ginsberg's poetry?]

"I will send a picture, too
