Heebee Post #872 - William L. Philyaw - Shawnee, Kansas - USA

 William's postcard is superb in it's 'Hitchcockian' appeal. Feel the palpable tension as the binocular man  desperately searches the skies and nervously awaits the arrival of something unpleasant.  Enemy agents? Great card William (or Alfred).
 The reverse side of the 'North by North Philyaw' postcard is "Plate 96". The large Russian postage stamp is a beauty and - hold on!  Now how did that little Mail Art tart slip out of my files and onto William's card? That blasted Fluxus Girl is actually flirting with the venerable "Professor Philyaw".  Dose she know no couth at all?  Sorry about that folks!
I think William, like myself, kind of lives Halloween in the head all year long.  It is an interesting frame of mind to be in. His subtle inference of doom in the featured postcard is impressive and disciplined in it's reluctance to reveal more and ruin the spell. William has a wonderful knack of knowing how to get under his viewer's skin and is quite popular because of that regard. Thank you very much my friend. I love the card - and as for little miss Fluxus Girl, it is just the essence of Fluxus being out of control - as it often is in real life!  Addressee - Mail Art.
