Mail to Heleen de Vaan – Netherlands

2016-01-24 11.27.11

Mail-Art that is on its way to Amstelveen to Heleen de Vaan, Netherlands. Also a thank you for the lovely rubberstamp “You’ve got Mail” which she sent me as a Christmas present. Somehow there is an error in the address label. Mjust have printed the extra R sometimes, and now  it reads not Heleen, but Herleen. maybe next time it is Hermelijn, en it will change into an imagenairy animal since she collects them,

Gift from Jack Latteman – USA

After being 2 weeks abroad I found with the incoming mail-art this box from Jack Latteman (Cascadia Artpost) in USA. Besides the formal USA postage sticker he also included on the backside lots of own postage that looked quite good:

The surprise came when I opened the parcek and found this large and wonderful rubberstamp for the TAM-Archives, but for sure also to use it on outgoing mail:
