Back again with more correspondence goodness.
|From Carolyn, Flypaper and Kerosene.|
|From Nancie (aka The Book Chick), who despite having just begun a correspondence, seems to "get" me (by the looks of this card she sent).|
|Also in the stack, was this fabulous "concertina card" (aka accordion book, I would think) from Jack Oudyn held together by the little red brads you can in this image.|
|Possibly my favourite spread, but it's very hard to choose. (So I won't.)|
And, oh, my goodness. This was a stunning package to see:
The "fabulousness" from Dori continued on the inside as layer after layer was unveiled. What a treat.
|Beautiful or what? The layering isn't coming through in the scan, but the piece is wonderfully textured and layered. (And there were little notes just for me under some of the flaps.) Thanks, Dori!|
I am pretty new to mail art and am just learning about artistamps (having just tried to make a few), so I was delighted to receive this from Cascadia Artpost. Who knew that the originator of artistamps was a Canadian, the late Michael Bidner (1944-1989)? (And here he is, in the National Gallery of Canada.) Here is Jack's (he of Cascadia Artpost) explanation of the latest mail art I received from him, with a sheet of Bidner's stamps.
|Jack has written a nice bio of Michael on the reverse. Thank you, Jack.|
Okay. I think that's enough for today. I think this might need to be a three-part series!
