MinXus Mail Bag: Now & Then with Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

Richard - 12.5.2014 - 1

Mail-art by Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

Today we’re thrilled to share a collection of both new and not-so-new work we received from mail-art icon Richard Canard. None of these pieces has been documented here or elsewhere, to the best of our knowledge. Some of them are not what Litter Richard’s legions of fans might ordinarily expect from the resident of Illusion, USA.

No Richard C. gathering would be complete without some of his poetry:

Richard - 12.5.2014 - 3

Richard - 12.5.2014 - 4

Saint Louis, Missouri? Hmm…. Erasure is one form of poetic composition Richard Canard has mastered.

This poem (above) is an altered book page, not the customary postcard, and came in an envelope:

Richard - 12.5.2014 - 6

The reverse:

Richard - 12.5.2014 - 7

Richard - 12.5.2014 - 8

The envelope:

Richard - 12.5.2014 - 9

Richard - 12.5.2014 - 10

Thank you and in some cases belated thank you to King Richard!
