Eclipse pictorial postmarks

I sent eclipse mail for the August envelope exchange, as well as to many of my mail art friends.

Here's my envelope to Jean before posting.

And I made use of the many special postmarks available for what was, in my opinion, the best 2 minutes of 2017, and chose 3 of my favorites. They seem to have arrived at their destinations by now.

Eva blogged hers...

So did Eric...

As well as Heleen, who showed this over at IUOMA.

Thanks for the nice blog posts and comments everyone, I had fun putting this set together.

Do you enjoy abstract mail art?

Lots of questions on my mail art recently - I like abstract art in particular, and also on mail art, and especially when it is one of Philippe's stunning painted creations. 

This one seems to have so much movement in it. I can almost see people on motorbikes racing around a track (leaning into the curve). What do you see?

Why do bananas have spots?

(Because they are leopards in disguise!)

Thanks for the mail art and great joke, Limner.

More minions!

This time the minions were stamped with round stamps - the golf ball and the global stamp from 2013.

Yesterday I showed the fun golf envelope.

The rest of August's haul is below.

Scientific code from Jean.

Pollination from Kate.

Outer space from Kathy (enlarge to check out the little added stars and planets).

G is for Golf

From the fun set of 'Have a Ball' sports stamps, here's a very clever envelope I received in the August envelope exchange from Lynne. 

Each stamp has some texture to it as well - on the golf stamp you can feel the dimples really well.
