Mail-art by Anete Ulmane (Riga, Latvia)

Anete Ulmane’s first appearance at the Mink Ranch revealed her interest in Trashpo.

(See the first work Anete Ulmane sent us: https://minxuslynxus2.wordpress.com/2013/03/04/this-is-definitely-trashpo-from-anete-ulmane-riga-latvia-the-open-field-composition-theory/

This most recent correspondence includes some very pleasing individual pieces as well a as spectacular Trashbook. Words are not adequate to express our appreciation. Here is the reverse side of the work above:

This gorgeous piece is far more text-centered. We think we references to Holism as well. And here is the reverse side:

Tenderfoots might note, especially if you look at the playing cards that open and close the book, that Anete Ulmane has a strong sense of visual syntax. The piece is very tightly structures.

Again, deepest thanks for this beautiful work, Anete!

Anete Ulmane has a fantastic blog you should visit! The “D” book we received is part of an ambitious series she is doing based on the letters of the alphabet. See who else received her books. Very exciting!

    Miss Net drawed that book right up there for me, Rancher. Now she might have got some of the particulars wrong but overall it is fair rendering of what occurred.

    What a beautifully tender book. Glad to see she’s only on the beginning letters… maybe I’ll get lucky and receive one (shameless). Will definately send her something. Thanks for posting D.

    Miss Becca, we can only offer warmest encouragement to Anete for her alphabet book project – others never made it past the letter A.

    Glad you could check it out, Diane! (Tenderfoots might not know Diane invented the Trashbook!)

    I’ll eventually move some of this stuff over to EUOMA.
