Mail art by Jayne B. Lyons (Lakeville, Minnesota, USA)
A warm “Howdy” and a secret MinXus handshake are extended to Jayne B. Lyons out in Lakeville, Minnesota on this, her first appearance upon the venerable Mink Ranch blog. We are so pleased to receive her mail art!
We have already made Jayne’s acquaintance via the equally venerable IUOMA-Ning site. We find Jayne engaging, curious about mail art history and – apparently – a born pack rat who collects and deals in vintage ephemera including stamps. This is a promising profile indeed for an artist bound for Eternal Network glory.
The truth of this potential is self-evident in this fascinating and entertaining retro-copy art (above) Jayne. B. Lyons so kindly sent. The “fake” theme is pronounced. She has managed to create a seamless piece that is – all at once – vintage, retro and postavant. FAB!!!
Add & Pass sheet started by Jon Foster (North Carolina, USA) circulated by Jayne B. Lyons
The Eternal Network seems to be experiencing a Platinum Age of the Add & Pass. We’ve never received so many A&Ps from such a wide variety of places in such a short period of time. Jayne B. Lyons included several A&Ps in her missive including this piece begun by Jon Foster. We are so glad Jayne has connected with Jon Foster! He is a great network contact.
Jayne B. Lyons created this A&P. She has access to and a good eye for some great images:
Jayne also did FAB envelope art:
Deepest thanks to Jayne B. Lyons!
