Incoming Mail Art – Mindaugas of Lithuania

I received a packet yesterday of some really great stuff!  Fellow IUOMA member Mindaugas of Lithuania sent me a packet of stamp art, some really cool square pieces that have a really nice gloss, as well as some post office cancellation stamps or marks from all over the world. Oh yeah and a Trump/Putin “Make Everything Great Again” Decal!  Love IT all!  

A Postal Experiment

So since I use a lot of old magazines I come across a lot of those paper “Business Reply Mail” postcards that you can send to the publisher and they will start your subscription to the magazine — you know annoying things inside the magazine that are always falling out?

Well…

I came across one from a Us World News & Report Magazine from maybe the 50’s or 60’s (I’m not sure… I honestly had ripped it to shreads in short order as I was searching for collage pieces). It had a an address in Dayton, OH on it but I knew that the permit would have not have been good so I did (not pictured) place a stamp on it.  I doubt that the circulation dept still exists (does the magazine?) but I’m really interested in knowing if the post card actually gets to some one and if so, will they respond?  I placed the URL to this site on the back of the postcard so hopefully some one responds.  

I know this isn’t exactly Art through the Mail… but it’s an experiment with artistic tones (whatever that might mean).

I received my first incoming Mail Art today!!  It brought such a smile to my face, as it really is right up my alley in style.  The postcard collage was from Pam VanderWiel from IUOMA.  This was from a reply of a collage postcard I sent her on 5/17/17.  Since this is my first piece of Mail Art I will certainly treasure it.  

I will certainly post more incoming mail art as I receive it.  Thanks again so much Pam!!
