arriving mail art from Uli Grohmann (Germany)


arriving mail art from Uli Grohmann (Germany) - the postcard came anonymously but I think it must be Uli because of the fly he used often in his mail art and the postage stamp from Münster.
Last saturday came as well the same fly in a similar photo (see some post below) but this was signed by Heinz. So it was a bit irritating. Nevertheless thank you.
