This beautiful card from Italy is a response to my Mail Art Call for Autumn-themed Etegami. The words are an old Piemontese proverb (a dialect of Italy): Bosch d' pùnta e fùmna d' piat a sustenu mes un stat, which means something like "Straight wood and lying women support half a country."

From an artist who has created a whole world of imaginary bugs, came this print of an adorable, winged, six-pawed, two-horned creature named B.Randy. This is the first time I've seen a card done on the back of a cookie box. I'm inspired to try it with Etegami.


The first non-etegami mail art I ever received was this laminated sheet of Ukrainian postage stamps with a colorful collage-style illustration pasted over it. It was an eye-opening first encounter with the global world of mail artists, and the beginning of a new adventure for me.

"A beautiful autumn evening at the end of my road," writes Sheryl, who made this over-sized card from her own photography and postage stamps of Canadian wildlife. I love it!

This beautiful card seems to call out "Italy!" to me, and that's exactly where it was sent from. Beautiful colors.

This card came from a fervent sea lover. It fits the minimum requirements of an etegami, in that it is a combination of artwork and words. I love the different shades of blue.

This work is titled 2009 "Red...Shoe." That seems to be Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz standing at the bottom. I love each element of the collage. Thank you, Richard!
