Mail art by Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)
In this (relatively) recent work received, our faithful correspondent Richard Canard has returned to a type of work that has made him an idol among the trashpoets and DKulters. The trash bag box is, we think, a brilliant choice of image to add to the myriad cereal and frozen dinner boxes that define his found Popart-based approach to Trashpo. No wonder they call him Litter Richard.
Elbert Hubbard is a very interesting character, should any diligent Tenderfoots aspire to a bit of research. We are also happy to be able to include two other pieces by Richard Carnard. These are more literary and conceptual compared to the Trashpo:
Is this concrete poetry? Probably not, although we are sure there is an equally qualified person who would argue passionately that it is. But we can assure it is not asemic, which seems to be the burning issue these days.
Thanks as ever to Richard Canard.
