Mail art zine by IUOMA member Bonniediva (Gurnee, Illinois, USA)

Bonniediva does not need me to further her praise. In fact, I would gladly nominate her for a Hardest Working Woman in Mail Art…

Thank you, David Stanley Aponte

I received this very interesting postcard from David. The front has layers that I think may include tiny words here and there. I have looked and looked but still am not sure. The back is a stylized skull with the words, “LART EST MORT.”…
