"Gerda's book is wonderful, and beautiful. Great blog, DVS. I mean, where else to see such an array of m-a body parts in one place. Hilarious. In my DK collection is a piece of her shroud's pocket, a wish you granted because of my love for…"

"What an unique assortment of body art. Thanks for sharing some from your collection. But I must admit that I like Gerda's artistic expression and variety of footprints the best. I remember the penis prints--they went faster than hotcakes at the…"

"Ha! Boy, you really do have an archive of wacky mail, DVS! I noticed the penis Image you received is 6 of 15 made - which means he had to ink that baby up a number of times. I’m not a prude, but I agree - it’s kinda gross.Yet, it…"

Gerda 10.9.2019 - 1a

Mail art by IUOMA member Gerda Osteneck (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada)

 

October 9, 2019 - Somewhere along the dusty and circuitous trail a rumor spread in the Eternal Network (I believe mostly thanks to Marie Wintzer) that I had a peculiar interest in obtaining the inked or painted footprints of women via the postal system.

For a time, I received foot art from women (and a few men). But the truth is I have…

Hi, De Villo, I was wondering if you have received my card? I mailed it out in early August. Thanks

Thank you for friending, and for the add and pass history you contributed in your comments to the Add&Pass group discussion "Just Send...Or Ask First?" I just read them with fascination!  <3

Card coming your way

I love your comment on Travel Mail Art, In fact, I am going away this weekend to a town in the country for a historical commemoration event. This is the first time I am making such a trip. I may give Travel Mail Art a try. Would you like a card?

Hey DVS, I’ve been meaning to post this for some time,,,, Upon perusing Ourang Outang and some of your other work I noticed a theme. Quite often you create a diamond shaped image, which calls to mind a rebirth. To me it represents a literal birth canal or vagina. Would love to hear your thoughts on why diamond shapes are present in a great deal of your work.  Thanks! JBL

Dear De Villo. No, not great just fortuitous.  I addressed an envelope to Rysuke but decided I needed something larger.  Not wanting to waste the time I stuck the envelope front to another I found here - containing an electricity bill once upon a time - and it needed covering up so . . . the quickest way was to shred a magazine page.  I am not convinced it will survive the postal system but no doubt we shall see.

Thanks anyway for the encouragement.  At least now I know what to send you!
