Also from Australia, from Jennifer jjalltheway, on her way back to Portland, Oregon

Very GREEN and very Aussie! This is Number 138 of her 365 project...making mail art everyday, even while on-the-road. Perhaps Erni can tell us what the music score is on the right? Looks German! But it is GREEN and with 

nice green overlays, too.…

Putting a new light on TRASHPO from Helen Amyes in Western Australia

A translucent envelope reveals unique "trash"-in-the-mail! I hesitate to open the envelope, as the contents can be seen through its transparency. And that makes a "flu" image, both sides, seeing color and confetti shapes floating and fluxible! Even some asemic wording appears..."or taking costs"...or "or taking posts"? And I placed it against the light to emphasize the…

Sewn Asemics from Marie Wintzer

Another sucessful Conceptual Work from Marie In Japan.

Most of the time we think of books as modular entities. Neat pages, filled with images and text.  Legible text,  a language system encased.   When one is confronted with shadow writing, it needs another sort of book then, not so?…

The Windmills of Your Mind - Lauriana Glenny

Lauriana sent two a-mazingly beautiful chapters (one red, one blue) in two a-mazing envelopes. I need to find a way to include the envelopes in the book, I think they belong there. These chapters have a wow factor of about a million and I'm lost for words to describe them, so I'll just let you enjoy some pictures. Lauriana, you know those are fabies, thank you so much for…

Spirit of Place - from Helen Amyes

Helen's handmade paper envelope with stitches all around was so beautiful, I first thought that this was it, it wasn't meant to be opened. The Spirit of Place stamp on the thick paper with dried leaves could easily pull it off as a piece on its own. I almost missed the snip, snip, snip instructions. I almost missed the little sandpaper booklet! A precious haptic booklet with…
