Michael Leigh - Envelope 1972


celia, originally uploaded by wastedpapiers.

Not really mail art as such as I knew nothing about the network in 1972 when this envelope was made, but it does not look out of place here and shows how much I was interested in making my mail as attractive as possible. The letter inside was similarly decorated with collage and penned in inks of many colours.

I really like this envelope,
Michael! While it may not be
Fluxus in style I think it
very much shows art using the
postal system. Jon & I often
gets comments from even the
postal clerks when we are
sending out our mail.

Hopefully in the weeks to come I can find the box of amazing envelopes that Celia made at that time. A lot of my friends at artschool at the time also sent mail that was quite startling for it's time though they knew nothing of Ray Johnson or Reginald W. Bray.
