Uh oh! We’re in the trash bin! Interesting post on Mail Art from archivesofamericanart.
After reading this morning’s blog post on John Held, I happened across this item by Carol Schneck, emblazoned with her unwavering opinions on Mail Art. It’s not often that you come across something in our collections that basically says “WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT ARCHIVE THIS.” I hope Ms. Schneck can forgive us for giving her postcard the full archival treatment: encoding it in a finding aid, digitizing it, cataloging it, and lovingly housing it in an acid-free folder. It’s just what we do.
