This great piece of mail-art we received recently is a bit of a pulp fiction mystery in and of itself.
We believe it was inspired by our blog about pulp fiction, film noir and the MinXus-Lynxus aesthetic. Our blog, in turn, was inspired by a segment poet and biographer Tom Clark had done on his well-known “Beyond the Pale” blog about James M. Cain. All in all, it was an opportunity to dig into a fascinating subject and attracted not a few viewers. We wish we knew who sent it.
Here is a link to the posting we are sure inspired this piece:
This is a folded, postcard-size work, and there is no letter on the inside. Who is the man by the book rack?
Maybe our Tenderfoot sleuths can be off assistance.
