Mail-Interview with Guy Bleus by Ruud Janssen

2015-11-21 13.54.10

Because someone in the USA wanted a signed copy of the mail-interview I did with Guy Bleus, published by the Stickerdude in New York, I arranged a sending in which also Guy and I would have a signed edition of the finished booklet. Guy stamped the envelope and also placed some delightful rubberstamps on the backside:

The booklet inside looks like this:


Mail from Miss Noma – UK

Again mail from Miss Noma in UK. This time the envelope shows another identity, and that ths the name of Arthur Cravan Jr.

2015-11-21 12.39.37 2015-11-21 12.39.52

The statement is obvious Arthur Cravan is NOT a mail-artist , but a Post-Artist. And what to expect in the enveloppe. When I opened it I discoverd there were again envelopes in it all addressed to me but with slightly different names:

2015-11-21 14.33.15

Nine to be precise. Also a special number with quite some symbolic to it. I already opened one of the envelopes and discoverd the empty stampsheets for the TAM Rubberstamp Archive seem to have been returned:

Will open the other envelopes tomorrow. Already documented all the envelopes front-side and backside, since there is a lot of play on them as well with names and rubberstamps. Will see what is hidden inside the envelopes…….

Mail from Richard C. – USA

2015-11-21 12.39.16

A new card from Richard C (Canard) in USA from 8-11-2015. It travelled fast across the ocean and now goes onloine and visits the world. Yes, Mail-Art has become a strage artform where communication can go fast in any direction in digital form while a piece of carton still takes its time, and can be photographed in the centre of Breda to be placed online.

The new typewriter is ready

The new typewriter is ready for use. New oil in the machinery, and a new 2 colour ribbon is now inserted, A first test showed all letters work perfectly, so the machine is ready for use. Will show you first results when the time is right.

Mail from Mike Dyar – USA

Last week an interesting parcel from Mike Dyar arrived with in it an object that deserves some attention.

2015-11-14 09.06.27

The backside of the parcel receils some details already. A.M. Fine and Ray Johnson, and Mike himself looking for the next question. The mail-interview with Mike Dyar (see on this blog at:

Was never finished and published when I ended the project.

Above the front cover of the parcel. Typical style of Mike, and I am off course curious on what the content will be,

2015-11-14 09.06.40 2015-11-14 09.06.52 2015-11-14 09.07.01

Inside an object carefully wrapen with a paper that reads: CLEVERNESS – “Don’t you think Mr. Ray E. Johnson would enjoy a perfect vacation,  through the end of this Cosmic Epoch ? “- A.M. Fine

Mike also wondered as to what the next question was. Since he is not on Internet, I will print out that question and will thank him for the sending. Also the backside reveils an explenation to this object and that reveals the story behind this.

Thank you Mike Dyar. Always a pleasure to receive your deep thoughts and generosity.
