So today I created a different mailing. I took a handful of my Goff Group envelopes (surplus that someone gave me when I used to live in Horseheads, New York), and I modified them into Geoff Huth Group cards (ignoring, for the moment, the extra eff in Geoff). Then I wrew a multi-part fidgetglyph about correspondence onto the back of sheets of letterhead. I used three sheets of paper from each of four different organizations, but each piece of paper is different in color or paper type from all of the rest.
Geof Huth, "the Letter A" (28 Apr 2004)
Since this was a mailing about correspondence, I wrote a letter to each recipient on the front of the letterhead. This self-imposed requirement actually persuaded me to write letters to a few people who have been waiting for letters from me.
I decorated each of the envelopes (except for the one going to Belgium) with the recent R. Buckminster Fuller stamp showing Bucky with a geodesic skull (or dome, if you prefer). I enclosed in most of the envelopes copies of my pwoermd sequence “forkèd lake” put out by Anchorite Press as a give-away for my reading in Boston this month.
These are the recipients of “the Letter A”:
