THE BOOK OF MINXUS by E – Ambassador of Utopia (Guivry, France)

Dear Tenderfoots & beloved companions on the Long and Dusty Trail, we are thrilled to present THE BOOK OF MINXUS, knowing we are witnessing MinXus-Lynxus history together. Our dearest Ambassador used some sort of corporate portfolio as the foundation for this masterpiece. The work arrived carefully encased in fishnet, which we had to remove:

We apologize about the scans. They do not reflect the genius of the work.

E - book - 2

A calendar of MinXus appointments and important days.

E - book - 3

Holism at its best.

E - book - 4

The first epic collage in THE BOOK OF MINXUS.

E - book - 11

The Wall of Clocks. Is that a depiction of the Mink Rancher in a tie? Where is the real E?

E - book - 12

Is this not the essence of MinXus?

E - book - 5

THE BOOK OF MINXUS is filled with pockets stuffed with every type of marketing you can imagine. We only show partially all it contains. A hole in your pocket?

One of the great works in the collage sequence.

More ephemera from THE BOOK OF MINXUS by E – Ambassador of Utopia.

A reversal! And how did E do this? It is seamless.

Perfection – mere words cannot suffice.

You see a Crown of MinXus, and this folds out into a large poster!

Some information from E.

THE BOOK OF MINXUS has a wrap-around cover of holes.

We cannot find the words adequate enough to express our thanks to E – Ambassador of Utopia, Order of the Tangerine Mink, for creating this work that will endure through the adventures and chronicles of MinXus-Lynxus.

    I am in awe of this thing. I don’t know how he did the collage. This was, wow, a tremendous undertaking.

    In terms of a narrative, I guess this is supposed to be MinXus Guivry and E is the one with the RayJo bunny head? But not always. He’s a bit cryptic.

    Well, E will stop by and he will appreciate your comment. So do I.

    As you can easily imagine, I am deep green over this. What a gem. And not only because “Marie’s birthday” is written there on E’s schedule 😉 although… that’s so sweet. I love the way he played with the silhouettes. Does “tout un monde d’impressions” translate well into English? In French the wordplay on “impressions” works really great. Have you tried to scratch and smell E’s fragrance??

    So nice to see other folks see this as a Triumph of MinXus – pushing the envelope, as the English expression goes.

    I also like the reference to Marie in the ledger. He has, then, created a detailed narrative.

    Yes, the work is haptic – it has a very nice smell! Why has no one before thought of MinXus perfume?

    Another testimony to the genius of our Ambassador.

    Corporate Minxus… is a triumph of Minxus Perfection.

    What would be the official MinXus scent? Tangerine? Or gamey fur after swimming in a swampy river?

    On one level, M-L is a place to share mail-art received (and for the effort Dark wall posts incomprehensible reactions.)

    On the other hand though, MinXus-Lynxus is an art concept, a non-movement “MinXus emphatically denies the existence of MinXus.” It’s collaborative in that anyone who wants to can participate (ever notice the post-neo tag?) in making it whatever it is. Even explaining it suggests too much ownership.

    We have developed a complex MinXus symbology or iconography based on things in work by different people. E really captures the essence of the (w)hole thing, in that you can read the MinXus narrative in THE BOOK OF MINXUS, and he also contributes to it, in the way Miss Becca’s sock is now a MinXus relic.

    So this is a great thrill!
