Cover of mail-art book by Carina Granlund (Petsmo, Finland)

Miss Carina sent us this spectacular boekie that we believe represents a very successful and sustained work in the genre.  Primarily grounded in collage, Carina uses an abundance of different materials including postcards, comics, photos and other varieties of found materials. Juxtaposing non-related materials gives the boekie its energy and interest. While we do not find an actual title, we are taking the liberty of naming the piece “Holiday Resorts of Finland” (from the cover) because the idea of a resort, vacation, relaxation, conviviality and general good will comprise a consistent theme.
