F&F #85 accompanied Penelope Harris (artistamp 3) and Rose Momsen (artistamp 7) to an art retreat in Canada and collected its full complement of faux postage in one sitting from mostly Canadian and a couple of American contributors. Some beautiful work here!
Today I’m happy to report the safe homecoming of F&F #4, one of the very first batch of F&F Postcards to begin circulation on August 30th last year. Its journey began with an artistamp added by Beanie Mouse, here in the UK, then accumulated 3 artistamps from destinations unknown, before 3 stops in the USA and a last passage home to F&F Central courtesy of S. Wurlitzer. Thank you to everybody who helped this postcard along its way! Tracking details.
And we have another ‘homer’: F&F #59! Kindly returned to F&F Central by Bethany Lee of Poetic Paper Post, in Florida (USA), this Postcard is showing a little wear & tear from its journeying with both a torn artistamp & a missing artistamp in the top row (see unscathed versions here), and a US postal barcode label obscuring the participants details on the lower row (see tracking linked below for known details of Postcard’s contributors). Personally, I love the visible after-effects of the Postcard’s time in transit – that’s what makes it mail art! 🙂 Tracking details.
It seems to be the month for it – yet another ‘homer’ has arrived safely home at F&F Central: F&F #33! Kindly returned home by its final ‘stamper’, Petra Weimer in Kalletal (Germany) and without any other sneak previews during its journey, this Postcard is possibly the most widely travelled so far, stopping off as it has in USA, Sweden, Greece, and Italy en route to Germany (before home to the UK). Tracking details.
Another ‘homer’ has arrived home at F&F Central: F&F #55! This postcard has travelled around Australia and the USA, and was returned home by Jay Block of Massachusetts (USA). Tracking details.
