Against Touchless Art

I do not receive many mailings from Gustave Morin, but each is a tiny joy, the back of which is covered with blanket of handwriting that barely leaves space for the sender's addresss. (He never includes his own address.) This mailing one is a thick white card, specifically of the type used to identify works of art in a gallery, and the message on the card tells us not to touch the art--an ironic message in the world of mailart.
