The Art of Stamping

John M. Bennett is about the busiest person in mailart and underground literature, even since the folding of his long-running zine, Lost and Found Times, early this year. He sent me this mailing soon after I'd visited him and written a little blog entry on him and his home, and on the outside of the envelope he says, "Now I have to imagine your house--you should do a self-visit, eh?"

Inside the envelope, John included a little pamphlet, an add-n-pass sheet, and a couple of wonderful rubberstamped visual poems. These seem to spell out words, but the meaning of these words is anything but clear.
