... the catalogues came already from the printer ...



Post für Otto - A Mail Art Project
hopefully they will be sent out from the beginning of June to the participants, step by step, so be a bit patient, each copy will be a bit different and unique, it is a numbered edition with an individual piece of art on the front page, so it take some time. If you would like to order more copies let me know right now. I think the subscribed price will be about 8 € plus shipping. 92 pages full colour version, size 21 x 21 cm, little introduction in german, english, italian and french. I think it should not be missed in any mail art archive.

and here how it will be posted a third time



see below for explanation

arriving postal experiment






this card came twice, the first time I did not use any postage stamp, just the little angels on it, it came with postal due - see the blue handwriting 96, but I did not have to pay for it, after this I sticked an old postage stamp over the two angels, but an already used one and just two halfs of this postage stamp in a not correct way. Now it arrived once again, canceled a second time, the blue handwriting was crossed out. Funny, I think I will post it a the third time?
