Historical tidbits, stamp news, member stories, pen pal parings and free downloads are just some of the ways we here at L.W.A. H.Q. are trying to inspire you, members and readers, to write more letters. It is the essence of what we are about. We are constantly looking for new ways to get out more mail through new projects. We also want to push at the conceived boundaries of what mail is and what it can mean.
Therefore, we're proud to announce our newest project: AUX Postal.
AUX Postal is a series of sets produced by Kathy, myself and our friend and collaborator Carolee, of Good Mail Day. Each set is designed to help you really dig your brain into the miracle of mail. While each set will be unique in it's own way, they will also always* contain a special cancellation stamp, multiple artistamps and a number of base envelopes for you to launch your mail art creations. To show you what can be done with these tools, we will also produce a limited First Day Cover for each AUX Postal set
Our first set and covers will go on sale starting next Saturday, November 17th.
These items willbe available to both members and non-members.
But what is the very first set to launch AUX Post!?
Well, we're calling this one M O T H M A I L. There's a sneak peek below, but if that's not enough, there is a way you can get your hands on an extra limited BETA FDC this weekend. You'll have to follow some clues and put together some puzzles to work it out. This will only be available in person somewhere within San Francisco. The first seven people who intercept our agent at the secret location will receive a M O T H M A I L First Day Cover as well as a couple of bonus goodies.
P.S. And a quick reminder that our R.S.V.P. Autumn set goes on sale at 8PM CST tonight.
