Received from Gilberte Vermeulen, Belgium--A Rose is a Rose is a Rose

Received from Cuan Miles, South Africa--London Evening at Westminster

There are so many marvelous aspects to this mail art--the blue images on the front, the stamps, the cancellation marks, and most of all,  the message on the back, dated 10-6-66. Thanks,…

Received from Svenja Wahl, Germany--Öl auf Leinwand

Of course I love the anatomy additions to this Van Dyck painting. (I think I know that guy on the right.) I like this mail art for its surreal elegance. Danke, Svenja!

Received from Dean Marks, France--Double Concentrated

Dean's mail art is ALWAYS double concentrated. Far-out, fun, and jazzy without all the mess. Of course I love the bison and if there is such a thing as Randals Bison the French Buffalos Ranch, I love that too, and it's all accompanied by a map so I have no…

Received from Carina, Finland--Be Safe II

Yeah, there's always something lurking: always something under the bed or a dude smoking under a car tire. You know I appreciate your concern, dear Carina. And thanks for the great mail art!

Tossed ashore by Mean Dean the Dancing Machine, France--Seeing is Believing

I love mail art that unfolds, mail art that opens up, and hey. I'm always glad when it makes it through the postal system unharmed. Dean's piece,…

Received from Amy Irwen, Minnesota USA--Lilac Inn Overlay

It just so happens that I love mysteries and I love this Nancy Drew piece. The overlay seems to be some kind of tissue paper with Amy's original text on it. A nice ghostly effect. Thanks, neighbor!

Received from MinXus-Lynxus, somewhere in the Eastern Hemisphere--MinXus Solar Festival Fortune (certified and authentic)

Ah, homework. Even in the summer. Still, it's refreshing to be able to take one's fate into one's own hands and I am eager to begin filling in the missing bits.

I have questions though. Many. For example, where do I read this amended fortune out? In the…

Received from Cheryl Penn, South Africa--Like a Door That Keeps Revolving

Another wonderful piece by the illustrious Ms. Penn--I dig the transparent layers which reveal and hide at the same time, the symbols of dice and taking chances, the inner workings of the mind, the enigmatic Mona Lisa smile, the incomprehensible and troubled…
