In Argentina, this collage was put in an envelop by Cernjul Viviana and sent to Amsterdam. I LIKE the use of fragments from a telephone book and the paper with green turtle pattern feels very nice. It has an 'uneven' surface. Cernjul also has a blog about MailArt which I will add to my list on this blog.
A beautiful piece of asemic visual poem titled "For Suus" by De Villa Sloan, USA. Asemic writing is something I discoverd through MailArt and it looks gorguous. What it is? A kind of writing but not using the familiar letters from an alphabet. Makes it all the more mysterious. Just Google <asemic writing, images> and you will see lots of examples.
The collage says 'Your future is MinXus' and shows Marilyn Monroe and an add for training as a secretary at home. Well, if Marilyn had done that, we would never have heard of her, I guess.

A tiny, blue, quite heavy for its size envelop arrived.
It contains a tiny book with the title 'Field Notes'.
What a beautiful boekie! The publisher / author / photographer is Christopher Skinner, United Kingdom. It is unique, funny, interesting and it looks stunning. Christopher takes the reader (me, in this particular case) for a walk with him and his dog Devo. The walk is precisely described. Mind you, the walk is on a 'strictly private' path, which makes it more exciting! Will they be caught by the local bobby?
