Mail art by IUOMA founder Ruud Janssen (Breda, Netherlands)
October 28, 2015 - Receiving mail from Ruud Janssen is always an occasion, and the missive blogged today is no exception. The envelope contained a diverse array of stamps, vispo and other art work.

Ruud Janssen is widely known for his hand-painted envelopes. I am thrilled to add another to the collection:
As ever, deepest thanks to Ruud Janssen for a superb mail art package!
