Japanese Mail from Holland

So here's the deal: Last March, Ruud Janssen carried out an experiment. He put Japanese postage on correspondence and posted the mail (presumably in the Netherlands). He wanted to see if the mail would make it through to his correspondents, and it did. In my case, this mail (postmarked) 11 March 2005 (or, more precisely, "11. III. 05-22") arrived last March, without any indication of the sender.

Ruud Janssen, "Today is almost gone" (12 Apr 1996)

Inside, however, I found a note from Ruud and a couple of pieces of paper, including this interesting little visual essay, which I find a bit more wistful and delicate than most mailart.
