Mail Received - Laurence Gillot

Laurence offered some tea, and a really nice package with tea & art arrived. At first I will show you the envelope cut open.

Unfortunately my French is very, very rusty, and I have not decyphered the text fully, but I do like the image of the painting very much. A kitchen window, an open book, some autumn birds - it sets the scene for a homely cup of…

Mail Received - Art Tower

More of Art Tower's sweet characters - robots and ladies. And tangerines!  My favourite is the girl with the big heart on the envelope! I love the fountain pen hand writing. Thank you Mr.  Art Tower…

Mail Received - Torma Cauli

I sent Torma Cauli an altered postcard from Vienna, and was surprised to find it blogged on his website already a few days later. Oh well, after all Budapest is only a few hours distance from Vienna. But then, really quickly, I also received a postal response: a fascinating haptic collage mounted on a card from the Goethe Institute. Wonderful! Thank you, Torma!…

Mail Received - Moan Lisa

A double surprise in my mailbox - on two days in a row - came from Moan Lisa. I got what I understand to be a lovely personal message on this postcard. And I got a large recycled envelope with some cool stamps from Russia. I take the medals as an award for my outstanding work at the Moan Lisa Art Academy! Inside the envelope there was a family collaboration piece of mail art. It features a little rat or mouse painting and reminds me of a favourite - the classic picture book Frederick by Leo…

Mail Received - Julie Block

Sometimes mail art provides real challenges, or puzzles to solve. It took me a while to put this one together, possibly because I got Card No. 2 before Card No. 1. Only today I realized, hang on, two cards from Texas, there may be a connection and now it makes all sense. …

Susan McAllister: Raining Eyeballs

I like Susan, she always leaves it to me to come up with a title for her art work.  It's like being a consultant, but without the high salary.  Then again, Mail Art like this is well worth the effort.

   My hunch is that Susan knows what she is doing, and has a trained background in drawing.   

Thank you Susan, you're amazing, and love your…

Katerina Nikoltsou: Forbidden but not forgotten or Barcodes that disappear

This is one that went missing for a while, but now it is back and has been added to my Katerina Nikoltsou National Library Collection.

Over time we have discovered that some barcodes disappear over time. Hence the question; "Are Barcodes are Human even if they disappear?" and which came first, products or barcodes?

Some food for thought this weekend.…

I benefitted from Carina's trip to Paris!

Such a fun piece from Carina!  My daughter was back from Uni to have a Thanksgiving meal with us (she's half American) and as I just told Katerina in the arty slides domain, she was a big Disney fan in her youth.  She is also a lover of everything French and of…

Nancy Bell Scott's feels like a 'make it yourself' map of mailart

I love getting a smorgasbord of mailart pieces and Nancy's 'hardly noticeable' mail art was a delight to slip from the side of the envelope.  The envelope, so beautifully crafted and topically appropriate... I hated to cut into it, but then I noticed that it was already opened (I don't think anything was taken, I hope not) but the pre-slitted slit helped me feel OK…
