Ennio Pauluzzi 1948 - 2010

Very sad news today of the death of Ennio Pauluzzi who was known as Elefantus on Flickr. We exchanged mail many times during the 90's mostly on the theme of elephants - his passion since his Elefanzine days of the 90's. Only just recently I sent him some elephant badges in September whilst he was on holiday in the Isle Of Man.
Above is from 1993 when Ennio and his girlfriend Poppy came to visit us and looked through our book of mail art portraits. Our condolences go out to his family and friends.

Oh no :-( I had just made a piece for Elefantus as well, totally with him in mind for mailart 365. I'm very sad to hear of his passing as he did inspire many of us to think "Elephant" whenever we put pen to paper, or collage or whatever mailart form we work in. I'll miss receiving his Elephants in the post.

A sad loss. Thank you for reporting this
