John Edwards (5)



How pleased one can be when a Bird is named after her: the Devaana Heleena (Linnaeus), known in English as the Jolly Green Nutcracker. I was happy that John has made this detailed illustration of this colourful bird, because I was too late to catch my camera to take a photo of the bird when I spotted this bird on the 31st of July.



On the back side John drew this nice Bird of Pray. And inside this envelope a postcard with a kind message.

Thank you very much, John, I am happy to have received some birds from your personal Bird Encyclopedia!

Fraenz (2)



Fraenz has hosted several mail art projects, including digital projects. Among them this digital ephemeral project.

I've drawn an analogue barcode Cow, scanned it to make it digital, added some words to it and emailed this Cow to Fraenz. And he was so kind to send me this documentation - on paper - from Luxembourg.



See more documentation on digitalephemeral.blogspot.lu.



Thank you very much, Fraenz!

Who could ever have thought that this piece of orange mail art would have something to do with Animals?



Well, it does: Bats on the back side!



And how can this Goldfish be related to Mammals?



Well, just add some Horses on the back!



Created and sent by Katerina from Greece.



Thank you very much, Katerina!

Boscographix



This surprise mail I received from Boscographix from the USA. Between the postage stamps and the airmail stamp a tiny Squirrel eating an oak seed, that's a good alibi to post this mail art on this blog. And the great rubber stamps of Humans, are of course too.



And inside the envelope a great surprise: Dutch postage stamps of bells and a street organ! (How did the sender know that I love music, too?!)



Thank you very much, Boscographix!

An impressive animal swam to my place: a Whale!

Sent by Katerina from Greece, and she added a clue to the 'what or whom is she staring at?' card:



Indeed, apples, onions and.. more impressive animals: Dinosaurs!



Along with some orange:



And this lovely Goldfish:



And some money, to check whether I am bribable or not:



Thank you very much, Katerina!
