Bought all of the 70¥ stamps the post office had – every single one.
Took off the jacket and scarf and sat for a while putting on inky stamps and postal stamps and dropped first batch into the wormhole.
Each card receives seven+ special touches yet it doesn’t seem like *near enough* to express my appreciation for my friends and correspondents.
In brief: #Spoilers
Front side a photo made by an Insta film camera and decorated with dymo labels, scanned and printed – Each one a little bit different with colour distressing #punkrock.
Reverse features an original freeverse poem with various touchpoints and hallmarks from the year & intentions ahead.
A hand applied “postcard“ signification (black ink), and air mail stamp (blue ink), a tiger stamp to commemorate the year ahead (red ink).
Hand addressed with my own “quasi-calligraphy (midnight blue ink)
Glued on 70 ¥ stamp with classic Japan vibes design.
Mildly obsessive? Yeah, definitely but I want each one to be better and better.
Up’d the total count to around 150 pieces so I hope you get one, I’m trying my hardest, I really really am – Rough couple of days after a few really good weeks, so it goes so it rolls #mecfs
Grateful for Post offices, correspondence, and you.
