Bifidus Jones -- St. Paul, MN USA

A scientific study of religion... yes dinosaurs and people were around at the same time its a well known fact! The great kachina says so.

We love sociological studies here at the menagerie so thanks to Professor Bifidus for this contribution!

Richard Canard, Illusion USA

Always a thrill to get mail from a mail art icon like Mr. Canard!
And we have been studying lots of birds here at the menagerie so his post is especially timely.

Grant - Chicago, IL USA (?)

This lovely composite creature was found on the menagerie's doorstep without a return address or signature----something of a puzzle, but one of the marks resembled an image from a previously received card from Grant so I attribute it to him.

Karen Champlin -- Highland Park, IL -- USA

Love the Rothko - esque bands of painted color on this piece of recycled mail art, nicely finished with the Rothko postage stamp... a nice surprise in the mailbox

Samuel Montalvetti - Argentina

Always a pleasure to receive mail art frm Samuel, full of interesting things and an add and pass project to work on, fun!

Carroll Woods-- Menlo Park, CA

It's not easy being green! You can sing about it, you can cry about it, but blame the dinosaurs for this oily mess and then lets all get a little more green!
Lovely summer music sent in by Carroll, I love to listen to the frogs sing at night after a summer rain!

Angela Behrendt - Hannover, Germany

Angela just flew in from Hannover and boy are her wings tired.......
bad jokes never go stale right?
But there is nothing bad or stale about this lovely piece of mail art!

Stan Askew -- Pasadena, CA USA

he's got cabin fever, she's got cabin fever
