3S &c.

The Illinois-based j0llyr0ger sends me an envelope created out of the index to a road atlas; decorated with the same cirrostratus fibratus stamp Roy Arenella used; and addressed to dbqp, qbdp, and Geof Hut (corrected to Geof Huth) in NY, NY--but the zipcode was perfect + 4. The most amazing thing about the address is that it's created from a spray-painted, hand-cut stencil, which gives the letters a varying haziness depending on how surely the stencil sits against the sheet at a particular spot.

j0llyr0ger writes a me a couple page letter, written to the "estimable Huth"--now, is he being funny? or did he misplace the in-?--and in his effective signature style: pseudo-quasi-eighteenth-century-pirate-brogue. A verbal delight. Within the letter, j0llyr0ger announces that μ 2.0 is in the works and that he's working on a new micro-periodical entitled MockingbirdWheel.

But, wonder of wonders is a little trifold publication entitled "3S," which is entirely created through stencilling and spray-painting. Three sh--er words appear on each panel of the resulting triptych, each wonderfully different visually from the rest.
