NOTES ON THE TRANSITION FROM CYBER ART MAIL TO PHYSICAL STAMP COVERS


These covers are the last of my cyber art mail, or covers that are entirely digital art. Subsequently in 2016, I began to create physical stamp covers, often printed on parchment paper, folded into envelopes. 

The cancellations continued to be digital on my physical covers. But they were applied by laser printer to physical stamps. None of these recent cancellations were transferred to the rubber stamp medium, as is common with many mail artists.

My next post of Xawar covers will be of my early experiments with physical fantasy stamp covers.

BINKEL COUNTY MISSIONARY STAMPS


Scarabeus Binkel, the mayor of Binkeltown in Binkel County, once set off to sea to explore the far off Barbaru Coast, and seek his fortune. It so happened that he disappeared in this endeavor.

Subsequently, back home, Itchy Holler Missionary  Radio established a Rescue Mission to retrieve Binkel. The above cover shows how they were trying to garner supplies for the mission.

Special Missionary stamps were issued by the county. Some had lottery tickets affixed to them. Others included tickets to concerts or sales items for things about the county. LOL
