Mail art by David Alan Goldberg (Charlotte, North Carolina, USA)
I am thrilled to share this card received from David Alan Goldberg. In his IUOMA-Ning profile, David states: “I created a steady stream of handmade postcards from 1985 until 2002, mostly under the pseudonyms of Blackbeard and DAG. Mail art ‘zines such as Beatniks from Space, MalLife, and Outre provided my inspiration back in the 1980s.” So, while I do not personally remember him, David Alan Goldberg was a part of the great mail art waves of the 1980s. He was involved with some zines that had a huge impact on me as well. So he is definitely a fellow traveler on the Long & Dusty Trail.
Wonderful to re-connect! Let’s make sure to stay in touch!
