Envelope Found Art

(Above and below) This is my favorite. A 1926 envelope postmarked by an obsessive, insane postmaster, I am quite sure. Waa-haa-haaa-haa! Click on image for larger view.

(Above) Back of insane envelope.

(Above) Illustrated Centennial envelope, 1936.

(Above) 1898 envelope for Brunswick cigars. Kinda cool how the wavy postmark is almost like smoke wafting from the cigar.

(Above) Beautiful 1893 envelope for Diamond Creamery Butter.

(Above) German envelope to National Bank of Germany.

(Above) 1936 envelope, postmarked from Mason City, Iowa.


ENJOY THE GRAPHIC, VISUAL POWER AND BEAUTY OF THESE ENVELOPES, and have a great week.
