Are you a fan of mail art? I am...big time! I mean BIG TIME! My boyfriend and I courted each other, for the first few months we were together, through mail art. It was pretty amazing. And I continue to send and receive amazing mail to friends who live all over the place.
For christmas, one of my friends got me a subscription gift for mail art. I had just sort of discovered this concept, because I purchased a similar gift for another friend. Basically, it is a subscription service where you sign up to either receive or gift mail art. The company I ordered from was Quarterly Co. I wanted to gift myself a subscription to every single person on this site!! It was hard to choose. But I settled on a quirky artist who reminded me of my friend. Let the snail-mail-gift-giving-extravaganza begin!
This photo is a montage of some of the mail art I have received for my present. Pretty incredible, don't you think? What a treat to get one of these gems in my cute mailbox or, better yet, when Bob the Postman hand delivers my mail! He always comments on the really unusual stuff I get. I think it makes his day to have the monotony of white bill envelopes broken up with these pieces of art. :)
