Mail art by Picasso Gaglione (Knoxville, Tennessee, USA)
If the contemporary mail art world actually has leaders, Picasso Gaglione would be one. At a minimum, if you are not familiar, he is a major figure in correspondence art history and a tremendous artist. His work with stamps in particular is worthy of exploration.
For the sake of full disclosure, I will tell you Picasso Gaglione graciously and generously sent me this work that I share with you today in response to something I sent him independent of the KoT. Of course, I am not above taking a DKult “useful tool” strategy and including him in the Karnival of Trash show (even if he had not indicated that focus).
Now there can be no dispute this is, indeed, the greatest show on earth! And I can write how thrilled I am that Picasso Gaglione supports Trashpo and DKult. (I am betting on the fact that he does seem to like Diane Keys.)
Here is the main attraction that was in the envelope. The stamp is on a conventional 8.5 X 11 inches sheet and signed:

Deepest thanks to Picasso Gaglione!
