Mail art collab by Diane Keys (Elgin, Illinois, USA) and Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

 

This scan of a remarkable mail art collaboration by Diane Keys and Richard Canard has been circulating on Facebook in recent days to much acclaim. We’ve “appropriated” the image to share with M-L Tenderfoots and, generally, perhaps, to a wider and certainly more focused network audience than the FB shares reach.

We believe this is mail art of the “Instant Classic” variety that deserves even more attention than it is receiving. We cannot help but note a similarity the work of the late Susan McAllister (Berkeley, California, USA). Possibly this is intentional.

Congratulations to Diane Keys and Richard Canard!
