As an exception on this website I show you a received postcard which wasn't intentioned by the makers as mail art.
This postcard I received from Lidia, and you see a book cover made by Hans Borrebach in 1960. Hans Borrebach (1903-1991) was a versatile artist, as not only an illustrator but also photographer, fashion drawer and cartoonist.
More about his life and work you can read and see on the websites Lambiek.net and Wikipedia (in Dutch language, a short translation you find here).
More book covers/postcards by Hans Borrebach you find here.
The reasons to include this postcard in the Your Doctor in Mail Art project, are the following:
- This was one of the images I had in mind when I started this project, and the image is very apposite,
- This postcard shows Art and this Art is transformed (by Art Unlimited) into a Mail object, so it is Mail Art!
- The sender is an excellent mail artist, see for instance her earlier contribution to YDiMA here.
- On the back side a Real mail art item made by Lidia, this apposite mail art stamp!
Hartelijk dank, Lidia!
