What a comfort to see a colourful envelope filled with collage cards in the mailbox in depths of winter. The mailing came from Victoria-based mail artist, Ginger Mason. Besides Mason’s honeycomb COMFORTER card, it included a hand-stitched card from US-based Rita J. McNamara. Both correspondents are (or have been) active in mail art. Some of McNamara’s journals are pictured here – Salon de Refuses: Contemporary Art and Society.
In exchange, Ginger received a copy of When Food Tells Stories: A Tale in 12 Courses, compiled by Elisa Yon (to pass on to Rita), and Lib Spry‘s We Are All Living History.
