From Taidgh Lynch, Dean Marks, Taras Tymkiv, Lubomyr Tymkiv and Manfred Heinze

Some amazing stuff arrived this week, but I haven't been able to document it until today- 

Just in time for the last class, (and library exhibit, we think) ,Taidgh's brilliant envelope arrived with a booklet letter on mail art-we've been given the go ahead to quote him in the exhibition catalogue, whatever form that might take! So-behold!

And Dean Marks-Thank you for corrupting America's youth with the glitz and glamour of the mail art world and it's back alleys of book defacing and dismemberment. If Napoleon and his rosy bride endorse it. . . you are the artist in sin, after all, er, was that Seine? Is the simian cutie on back their love child? This piece really tickled the kids-particularly when I read them the part "some books are better off in Mail Art than sitting on the shelf." Thank you, Dean!

And check these two that came together in the mail-They have the same last names-could they be siblings? Anyway-the kids loved studying these-first from Taras Tymkiv-

Taras, I am very curious about this story you are telling! My son, Rider really studied your pictures-right up his alley! (I love drawing with line with pen and ink, too! Thank you, Taras!!  

And then we have Lubomyr with a rubber stamp story involving the Incredibles and a window into a ship yard scene. I love this combinaton Lubomyr! It mixes things I never thought about mixing before and makes both things more interesting because of it! Thank you, Lubomyr-the kids were very excited about your stamps!

And I am really, really excited about this one-and so were the kids-a texture poem from Manfred Heinze. This opens the possibilities wide open-a game changer for the kids! They were excited to talk about the possibilities brought up with this work-and so am I! Thank you, Manfred! Really, this gets the mind going. It is refreshing like an Anish Kapoor piece. You just drink it up.

You people just blow me away! All so much fun! Such generosity. On behalf of the kids and myself and all the teachers who have eaten these treats up, Thank you!!!

Thanks for the wonderful blog Jinny.  I'm Happy it arrived.  I sent it went I was in Germany, and so far the German post have played along with the game.

   Sorry, I don't know too much about the love child.  I just wanted to let the kids know that school books can be fun.

   I like the other mail art you received.  Who is Manfred?  Great stuff, but could take the kids away from going to school.

Yes, Susan! I will-it is still in discussion as to where we can do it for sure, but I will certainly let you know!

Hey Jimny, please let me know when the exhibit is. I'd love to see it.

Hello, Theresa, xxjones and MomCat! Thank you for stopping by the blog! It occurs to me to mention(since it is right above where I type) that the black square on Manfred Heinze's piece is a velveteen-the print of a diaphanous cloud is on a slickish stock, both on a medium paper base with the bas typology of the dried paint---all make it very engaging to fingers and eyes!
