Inspired by Angelica Paez's add to and returns I decided to do one myself. I sent out 30 sheets rubber stamped with a digestive system to be added to and returned. The first to come back arrived today from Adanaland/Alan Brignull. What a great start too!

Alan also sent along this great card which I immediately liked - but was even more impressed when I read on the back of the card that this was a first effort at haiku and reduction linoprints. I've been wanting to try reduction printing myself at some point, but so far haven't gotten around to trying it.

Thanks! It was brown first, then cut a bit away at the edges. Print white then cut a bit more, then light blue, more cutting and finally dark blue.

I didn't know what reduction printing was so I've just
been reading about it. I have watched it bring done
on tv too. If Alan used that technique here - respect!

Yes, one add & pass arrived in Petsmo today. Thank you, William. Love the envelope and "digestive system" idea! So clever.
