It's been a good week on Alamo Drive for mail art. First up: Lesley Magwood Fraser's strange creature.
Next up, Svenja Wahl, the famous clairvoyant from Heidelberg sent me this helpful tonsorial advice. Little did she know that my personal assistant, Bobo, an ape of some sort, has been straining at the short leash I've given him. Cutting and collating is not my gig he told me not long ago. However, his ticket out of this dead end job was missing until Svenja's postal arrived.
Well, as luck would have it as soon as Bobo put on his "Hero" mustache he was whisked away from my employ and now works as a pastry chef (see inset) at the tony Lapin du Prix in downtown Wagonmound. He prefers to be called Renee I'm told. Thank you, Svenja.
Finally, yesterday this wonderfully haptic book cover arrived from the studios of Skybridge. In the nick of time I might add now that Bobo has abandoned me. On the back a can of medium ground Fluxus to be ingested orally when I'm threatened by Bluto. As well as Lisa's trademark uncancelled antique stamps. Where does she find them? Or has she been keeping them since stamps were 15 cents for the perfect occasion? It's a vexing riddle. But it adds so much to her work. Thank you, Skybridge.
Great stuff. Thanks again, gals. BTW, Svenja, your card did arrive on Monday.
