Heebee Post #336 - D.C Spaulding - Lomita, California - USA

D.C.'s classic Mail Art Geisha having problems with the Mail Art she is receiving. On closer inspection you can find some pretty robust Mail Art characters names. I had just been reading John Held Jr's accounting of Guglielmo Achille Cavellini (see his famous sticker above, in the center) - fascinating and incredible! Spaulding's postcards are sometimes rich with Fluxus, Dada and Mail Artist commemoration. Gotta love it!
Take a moment to read about this enigmatic, amazing, confounding and lovable Mail Artist/Fluxist from the annals of Mail Art History here: Cavellini 1914 - 2014.
Heebee Island is always very happy to have DC and his work here on the Island. You can see a nice slice of Who's Who in the Mail Art pie within this well-known card. Thanks for carrying the torch my friend - love this card.
