Detourned Nation

Reed Altemus has sent me another one of his brown envelopes stuff with mailart. Inside there are postcards and two sheets of full-color copy-art artist's stamps, and a couple visual poems. One of my favorites in this batch is a stylishly detourned comics page in which Reed has filled the word balloons with random sets of floating letters, leaving us to question our ability to communicate with language at all.
