End of VQR Postal Project


This blog has been active for two and half years. I have received mail art from 39 42 artists/penpals/friends and from 17 different countries. I am very grateful to everyone and I think I have answered every contribution except this one, because I still do not know the sender's address. Let me know if I owe you a letter!

The first aim of the project was to receive this. But sometimes the projects grow alone and I have got all kind of cows and cheese you can imagine: pictures, magnets, stamps, postcards, drawings, purses, dolls, paper dolls, collages, press cuttings, mail art, DIY cows, brochures, labels, stickers, tape, boxes... along these two years.

Now, as I have announced, I am closing this project. Not that I do not like cows any more. Let's say that I have got enough cows for the rest of my life. And I want to move on. Actually I have another postcard project... (I must say I will be happy to receive anything related to the vintage VQR or new round covers of cheese boxes).

So thanks again. I hope you have enjoyed the project as much as me!






PS The postcard shown was sent by Heleen (the Netherlands). Actually, it was sent for my birthday 
(with cows also on the wrapping paper). And I had received the matched cowstamp on another cover.

Cows Are Pretty


Send by Phillip (the USA). This is a famous work by Andy WarholCow (1966). Inexplicably, I had not received it yet...

In Glanstonsbury

Sent by John (the UK)

As early morning mist rises above Glastonbury Tor cattle stand and stare, says the back of the postcard. I would write they are thinking.
