Calamitous Mail Art

Today’s mail brought with it this terrific piece of mailart from Emilie. I’ve tried my hand at mailart myself, and my attempts tend to disintegrate under the pressure of the envelope eating machines mail sorting equipment. The back of this envelope was sealed with a sticker featuring Gaughin’s “Woman With a Fan”.

"Portrait of My Daughters" (1907) by Frank W. Benson

Inside was this wonderful card (real card, greeting card, not postcard) inside of which was inscribed a letter. And to think all I had done for Emilie was adopt one of her postcards.
