MinXus Mail Bag: All that Glitters by Annette Kesterson (San Francisco, California, USA)

Mail-art by Annette Kesterson (San Francisco, California, USA)

A wink, a grin and a secret MinXus handshake is extended to Annette Kesterson of San Francisco upon this, her first appearance upon our humble blog. We deeply appreciate this compelling and somewhat cryptic postcard-size work. Our favorite part, the part that made our day, is difficult to see via a scan:

It is the glitter that gives this piece added sparkle! While we do not use it ourselves, we are advocates for more glitter in mail-art, especially in light of this lovely piece by Annette Kesterson! She has made some real magic here, we think. Yet beneath the glitter there is the artistic gold of images, juxtapositions, colors and text fragments (among other elements). A wonderful introduction to a new mail-art friend! Thanks again, Annette.

We also highly recommend Annette Kesterson’s The Scarlet Librarian blog:
