Heebee Post #1001 - Cascade Artpost (Jack Lattemann) - Olympia, Washington - USA

 Some amazing detail from from Jack's  "1 Motico" - Eternal Network Fluxus certificate (below). If you peer closely at the above image, you can just make out the figure (Ray Johnson?) in the center, standing atop a large pile of of scattered lumber with the word "Fluxus" displayed. Jack is a real stickler for fine detail.
 The certificate itself is an incredible achievement - printed on fine "Rag Paper", similar to real U.S. dollars, these certificates look and feel like authentic currency. Cascade Artpost is just bursting and bubbling with class!
 The "2 Moticos" certificate is another lesson in fine printing artisanship.  Pretty hard to surpass Jack in this area - When I met Jack at the AARPEX , last November in Seattle, he was in the company of some of the best of the best of the Faux Philatelic creators: Carl Chew, Dogfish (Robbie Rudine), E.F. Higgins, Jas Felter, etc. - a room full of giants!  I was deeply impressed - so much so,  that I, perhaps foolishly,  vowed to be  among their ranks someday. Well folks, I still have a long way to go! (But I am slowly catching up)! And by the way, if you would like to know more about what a Motico is, try here: Moticos to Mail Art..
 A Cascadia Artpost envelope always captures an odd sophistication, as does it's creator. Those "Fluxus Libris" Artistamps are actually a delicate silver.

I wish the fine detail of the "New Fluxus Symbol Set #18 was a little bit clearer - it certainly is when seeing it close up, in person.  Obviously Jack is having a lot of fun and it is infectious!

I thought I might show just a little bit more of the glorious Fluxus detail Jack generously supplies! Terrific stuff!  Thank you Jack - I'll be framing these handsome certificates. See you in the mail - And how about lunch or dinner sometime? - You are only 25 miles away!                                                                                                             Cascadia Artpost
