Letter from 1993


Letter that John Held Jr. found in his archives and published on Facebook. It shows a photo taken by Jenny de Groot (Hengelo, Netherlands) when I was wisiting her and we were writing some letters to mutual mail-art friends. I copied the photo and use d it as writing paper as you see above. Ove of the letters went to John Held on February 1993.  Nice to see this back again. The stamp used below was a logo designed by Lon Spiegelman (USA) made in 1990, which I tranferred into a rubberstamp. Lovely memories and that statement is still true.


Mail from Richard C. – USA

2015-11-21 12.39.16

A new card from Richard C (Canard) in USA from 8-11-2015. It travelled fast across the ocean and now goes onloine and visits the world. Yes, Mail-Art has become a strage artform where communication can go fast in any direction in digital form while a piece of carton still takes its time, and can be photographed in the centre of Breda to be placed online.
