|This little book looks like it was much loved. And, I love it too. I recently came across it in an antique shop where I also found a tiny mail box bank.|
The guy just threw this book in for free!
Sometimes you get lucky.
|A good example why you shouldn't use tape that isn't acid free.|
|I am just loving these drawings of post men. So charming. And, since the book is falling apart anyway, I don't feel too bad about tearing out the pages to use for art purposes....|
|Did you know this?|
|I hope he stops at my mail box.|
|Here is another charming book about mail. A pal gifted this one to me -- a find at Scrap.|
|There is some fun stuff in this one -- a section of The Language of Stamps and|
another few pages of US Postal Service stamps featuring the US Postal Service!
|I have long thought we should resurrect The Language of Stamps.|
|Love this one. Is she licking it? Sealing it? Smelling it? I don't know but I like it.|
The book from the fabulous Ex Postal Facto event and show. These are photos of the mail art shown at the SF Center for the Book -- an inspiring collection of mail art.
|A sample page of deliciousness....|
Contact the SF Center for the Book if you are interested in getting a copy of your own.
|Good Mail Day|
by Jennie Hinchcliff and Carolee Gilligan Wheeler
I have mentioned this book many times but I am finding some folks still don't know about it --gasp!
If you don't have it, and you like mail art, you've got to get it.
That's all I can say.
|Page after page after page of great stuff.|
