arriving mail art from Anke van den Berg (Belgium) - what a surprise, I started this booklet exactly 2 years ago and now it turned back to me, which was not intended at all. Inside participations from Anke, Diane Bertrand, Jürgen O. Olbrich, Moreno Menarin, Pascal Lenoir, Christian Alle, Henri Lucas, Eberhard Janke, Sigismund Urban and A. Maximilian Niss. Thanks to all of you. Anke has a new mail art call with the topic: THE KING.

this card I have thrown twice into the mail box, the first time it came without any postal cancelation, the second time the little angels got two stamps but with postal due - the handwritten 96 means I should pay 96 euro cents, which I haven't paid, so it failed and it failed not...

Finally I found one of these old cigarette machine (here one from the 1970ies) which will be integrated in the mail art exhibition on the topic Otto von Bismarck - I will us it as an ARTOMAT. I will pick them on thuesday and hopefully it will work fine. I hope I can find some artists who will participate in this interactive project, you can send your multiples in (at least 10) for this ARTOMAT, it must be fit inside a cigarette box. (size ca. 86 x 55 x 22 mm) - your art work can be related to Bismarck (this would be fine) but not necessarily. Each multiple should be signed and addressed, so maybe the buyer could get in contact with you. Each participant of this ARTOMAT project will get a free copy of the mail art catalogue which will be published in the end of May. Yes, I finally got the fundraising for it - that's the good news.

arriving mail art from Wolfgang Skodd (Germany) - Wolfgang has asked me to do some perforating job for him by sending me these sheets. Wolfgang, if you come along here, sorry at the moment I have no time for it. I have to work for the planed mail art exhibition about Bismarck.
arriving mail art from Carla Cryptic (USA) - Carla has sent this in for the pink correspondence school (see here: http://pink-correspondence.blogspot.com/) but she used a valid postage stamp and not the official pink card for "advice of delivery", this is against the principle, so it can not be accepted there. Nevertheless thanks for the postcard.see her page: http://www.carlacryptic.com/

arriving mail art from Ottmar Bergmann (Sweden) - Ottmar got this pink card from Heinz and he modifed it with further collages and sent it back to Germany. In a way it would also fit to the Bismarck blog or the pink blog, but it has been sent with a valid postage stamp, so I post it here. Thank you.
