Chantal Casamayor de Planta

I was stunned when I found this large radish card in my mailbox. It is very bright and colorful. The construction is interesting, two large pieces bound together with raffia. An amazing mailart postcard. Thank you, Chantal.

Marnie Blair

Marnie has done something beautiful and original with this postcard. It is a translucent piece of vellum with a color shifting green iridescence on the address side. When you hold it up to the light you can see the images on both sides at once.

Ruud Janssen - "Fluxus Words Collection"

I really like these word paintings from Ruud. They are are colorful, mysterious and have an interesting surface texture.


This delicate collaged postcard came in a handmade envelope with rubber stams and a surprise ATC enclosed.
