F&F #71 began its journey with Stewart Charlebois in Canada then travelled a few of the United States before heading back home to Derby (UK) – showing a little wear & tear, but lots of character!
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.
Freshly arrived at F&F Central is F&F #34, the third ‘homer’ of the project so far! This postcard began its journey in the US, with 3 stops there followed by 3 stops across France before returning to the UK where it was completed & kindly returned by Alan Brignull, resident of fictional Flatby aka Wivenhoe, Essex (UK). Tracking details.
Look out for details of the 1st Friends & Faux (V.2) mini zine, which will be available later this week in the F&F sub-section of the TangleStore. All who have contributed photographic evidence of the project as well as their postal address (via the Tracking Form) will be in line for a free copy. 🙂
F&F #3 is the second ‘homer’ of the project so far, having been returned with its 7th addition by Maeve Hossett of Auburn, California (USA) – thank you! This postcard began its journey in Australia then has circulated various American states before returning home. Tracking details.
F&F #10 is officially the first postcard of the current project to arrive home! Tracking details.
Update & return home courtesy of Darlene Altschul, proprieter of DKA Post, who slightly misunderstood the rules & completed the card with several artistamps of her own rather than adding one & passing on. I forgive her, though, because she sent a very sweet letter alongside, including a pic of her very own manually operated antique Southworth perforator (of which I am not at all envious), as well as 2 sheets of beautifully owlish faux postage. Thank you, Darlene!
