Mail Art

I came across these retro vintage letters. The envelopes are folded from magazines, the to and from information are placed at random, as are the stamps. Apparently it was done a lot back then. I'm sure they didn't call it mail art, but that's exactly what I'm going to call it!

Letters are stamped 1971. I'm in awe.


  1. Wow. We used to do those back in 80's when me and my friend wrote real oldfashioned letters to each other. It was quite important to make "the envelopes" look really cool.

  2. So cool!--the year that I was born too!--I guess I'm officially 'vintage'--lol!

    Wonderful blog!

    Thanks so much for stoppin' by my blog--I greatly appreciate the comment!
