A Web of Mail

A week ago Monday, I received my first mailart of the year, which (remarkably) came only from people I did not know! Anyway, it's time to review this mailart a little.

The first card I received was this piece of classic mailart from R. F. Côté. A beautiful front to this card, but I show this primarily to help Ross Priddle out with his Five Million Copies Project.

The back of the card is what interests me most. A beautiful painted and found object collage. The plastic webbing and the hazy shimmering newspaper text are wonderful touches--plus the color!
