Mail-art by Allan Bealy (Brooklyn, New York, USA)

When actress Karen Black died last year, Allan Bealy created a set of FAB stamps honoring her memory. He was kind enough to send us some along with this great A Book About Death postcard (above). Here at the Mink Ranch, we’re big Karen Black fans.

Allan Bealy is a veteran mail-artist and superb collage maker. Tenderfoots participating in the Eternal Network are likely familiar with his work. In particular, we admire his collabs with Cheryl Penn (South Africa):

Allan Bealy also included a card:
