Heebee Post #554 - Stan Askew - Pasadena, California - USA

Always glad to find the superb postcard crafter Stan Askew having fun at the Affair. He has manufactured a delicate perceived balance of good and bad, the high and the lowly (yin and yang) with this new creation (...and so it goes).
The reverse side of this wonderful card is handsome and cryptic - Stan is very good at this and it is indicative of his interestingly clever style - always very good, almost scientific!
For some odd reason, I have always liked vintage snapshots of the proverbial Nuclear Family. Stan added these pics and don't they look marvelous posing for the Affair? Do you feel the family unit was more cohesive 40 to 60 years ago? The Affair thinks about things like that.
And this antique cloth postcard from the Smokey Mountains for my collection. Nice.
I have traded many cards and assorted mail art with Stan the last few years and it is always a pleasure. Great to have you back old friend. Thank you very much. You can view a few of his past efforts here: Photo Askew. See you soon!
