Received July 16- Aug. 2nd

Standard

We had several great submissions while I was on vacation, so let’s catch up with more mail art!

First, from Suzlee Ibrahim in Malaysia. I’ll show both sides of the card because I think stamps, postmarks, and air mail stickers are also interesting! Thank you, Suzlee.

Next, our youngest contributor, Elizabeth Schwartz, age 9. This one is postmarked San Francisco. Nice work, Elizabeth, thank you for participating!  If any other children are interested in sending their art, we would love to see it!

The next one is titled “Book Love” and is from Jill Wiggins, in Austin, Texas. Thank you so much, Jill, and thank you for your description of your process in the message!

Our next artist is Consuelo Debiagi from Campinas, Brazil.  Lieratura Literatura. The encaustic technique, using wax, will take a polish to preserve the shine. It’s lovely to see in person. Thank you, Consuelo!

This next one is from Anna Dana in Sausalito, California. There is so much to see on the envelope as well as the card! I’ll show you the whole piece:

Fantastic work, Anna, thank you!

Our last envelope for this week is a second set of cards from Dorian Ribas Marinho in Brazil. I really admire his work. Thank you for your generous contribution!

We’re still accepting submissions for the next four weeks, so if you’re interested, there’s plenty of time left. It’s looking like this display will be an amazing one, and there is a possibility that it will travel to other library branches when September is over. Many thanks again to everyone who has sent their art!

Jeanne
