Outgoing to Ryosuke Cohen (Japan) – September 16th 2017

Ryosuke Cohen has been doing his Brain Cells since 1985, and this year the 1000th issue is expected. I estimate that I have about 400-500 of his Brain Cells in the TAM Archive, including that very first one also. Today I decided to write him a letter and use the typewriter for that.

Because Ryosuke always chooses an image for including on his Brain Cell I always make sure he has a lot to choose from on the enveloppe. The traditional envelopes are made as I print stamps from the TAM Archive on a regular basis to send the collection back into the network in a printed form.

Word Rubberstamps in the TAM-Archive

I have these lovely sets of wordstamps in the TAM Rubberstamp Archive. Ocasionally I use them to play with on my outgoing mail-art. The stamps are cheap, and self-inkting. Each set has 3 words. They were on sale so I bought a few years ago. Still enjoy them every time I use them.
