Carly Toyzan: Please describe any especially memorable pieces of mail art you have received or sent.

A contribution for my magazine IPM in 1993. It was the International Poetry Magazine and I received an exceptional contribution from Litsa Spathi. Only one month later I answered and our correspondence began and grew. In 1996 we met for the first time and after that things grew. Now we are married and live for over two years together in Breda.

The contribtion by the way was an object book. Very well done, and something new to me then. This contribution changed my life completely and shows how mail-art has an impact on someones life. I am not the only one. A lot of mail-artists can tell similar stories.....

Yes, 15 years ago. What a single letter can start.

Still the best piece of mail I got since it brought us together. Now in 2017 already over 12 year married and never regreted the step.
