From February 2019: Mail art from the legendary Richard C.
I can't recall ever getting a serious piece of mail art from Mister Richard Canard, and that's fine with me! I enjoy his sense of humor.
For the "Dinah Shore / Dinosaur" poem, he cleverly situates a 2009 44 cent stamp (commemorating Ms. Shore's early television success) with a 2006 set of eight dinosaur stamps from the Republic of Kiribati (a sovereign state in Micronesia in the Pacific). From the looks of things, Dinah appears to be pleased -she's blowing a kiss in Richard's direction!
Another piece by Richard features half of the 2001 set of 20 Carnivorous Plants (34 cent). We are riddled with the following question: "Have you heard about the vegetarian that only consumed Carnivorous plants?"
In "The Screaming Visitor," (2018) Richard C. uses Edvard Munch's iconic "The Scream" to lampoon (I'm guessing) President Donald Trump! Well done!
Thanks to Richard C!
