MinXus Mail Bag: Theoism stamps from Theo Nelson (Calgary, Alberta, Canada)

Theo - 6.8.2014 - 1

Mail-art by Theo Nelson (Calgary, Canada)

Tenderfoots currently participating in the Eternal Network are very likely familiar with the whimsical, charming and slightly tipsy world of Theo Nelson. In most cases, access is provided through Theo’s imaginative postcards that include rhyming verse. This dog-gerel is very cat-hartic, if you catch our drift. Here at the Mink Ranch, we have come to call this phenom Theoism (after Neoism) and sometimes like to refer to Theo Nelson as Neo Thelson.  Neo Theo outdid himself by sending this sumptuous medley of artist stamps that, taken together, provide a map of his highly imaginative and always inviting alternative universe.

Theo Nelson has established an engaging, sometimes amusing, mail-art persona. He included a very kind note with this tremendous package:

Theo - 6.8.2014 - 5

We can certainly find a use for these, Theo. Here are even more stamps included in this remarkably generous mailing:

Theo - 6.8.2014 - 6

The mailing was enclosed in a great envelope:

Theo - 6.8.2014 - 7

And the reverse:

Theo - 6.8.2014 - 8

As ever, many thanks to our correspondent in Calgary, Theo Nelson.
