Received from Dean Marks, France--Beret Vert

Fabrication Franҫaise n’est-ce pas:

And Dean is the hero of mail art text collage. Pages and words piling up like the snow outside, creating some great texture. And everyone knows I love maps and stamps. I'm glad this piece arrived safely--the old patina of the pages is a visual treat, and I'm enjoying reading what I can. C'est formidable, Monsieur Dean. Merci beaucoup!!

Yes it was a very popular son in America.  Happy those days are over.

     Well just wait until you hear Madonna's re-mix version. 

PS: I like the 3D stamps.  Not sure if they show up that well on the scan.

     Happy it arrived and found a heros ending at last.  Sometimes I run across books that people put in a box and leave in the street.  I think that sometimes they are from an estate clear out. (That's a nice way of thinking about it.)  Before cutting it up, I did offer it to several friends, but they all said "no thank you". 

     Who know, maybe it was the book which belonged to a Green Beret, or maybe it once was a birthday gift.  One thing for sure is it now has found a happy home and can rest in peace.   And of course we all hope that Madonna does a re-mix of the song.
