Farewells #3

Mail Art is not only making, but also preserving, collecting, organizing, and remembering.
At Friedrich Winnes´(1949-2005) funeral it has been a consoltion for his friends to arrange for a Book of the Dead. Which turned into two. After the dead of John Evans (1932-2012) and Shozo Shimamoto (1028-2013) it was time again to publish another volume of "farwells".
In it mail artists honor their deceased friends - thought Lutz Wohlrab, the editor of this wonderfull book.

A new  assembling was born with contribution by:

Oh! I love this book -- and remembering the dead that way. I hope someone makes a book when I"m dead.......
