British zombie-humor from Arac, USA

Like like like! Just as good as 007 & The Queen! Zombies waiting a long-long-loooooooooong time for anybody to pass and give them a quarter. Great laugh and I wouldn't mind having the zombie-gnoom with wooden shoes on my balcony. The stamps on the back are also fab. Thank you…

Isle of Joy from Bifidus, USA

Global Mail Art from Bifidus. Stamps from Indonesia and USA, fragments of maps from Afrika and my guess is, the monk is from Ireland or Great Britain? Beautiful composition. Thank you, Bifidus.

Guido's interpretation of the Belgium flag

This morning I had to do my administration and amongs the blue envelops (tax) and bills I found this wonderful envelop, designed by Guido Vermeulen. It is his interpretation of the Belgium flag. Is it my imagination or do I really see a doggy on the right, cats in front of the red and other creatures studying the flag?

Mail Art with surprises, I love it. Dank je wel,…

Monotype from Michalis Kotsaris, Greece

This is beautiful. It is number one of a series of two monotypes, created by Michalis Kotsaris. I am really curious about the technique. The paper is handmade, I guess. Thank you, Michalis.
