The most amazing Lion I've ever seen, is the Abstract Lion! Issued as artistamps, created and sent from Sweden by Eraser Heed.
Below the well-known Bunny in his/her neonatal period and a little extended.
Great envelope, too. See the beautiful postage stamps, among them a serie of the celebration of 350 years Swedish Post (in 1986).
Thank you very much, E.H.!

Yay! The Platypus!! This is one of my eldest favourite animals, I mean, I already was intrigued by this special mammal as a child. So I jumped to the ceiling when I discovered this beautiful collage in my mailbox. Created and sent by Nicole Eippers from Belgium. Whose favourite animal, I guess, is the Pig.
Thank you very much, merci beaucoup, Nicole!

Beautiful combination of a screen print Cat, rubberstamp and embossed print paws and typography.
Created by Sonja Reedijk from the Netherlands.
She also suprised me with this sunny mixed media collage.
Thank you very much, hartelijk dank, Sonja!
Mariana Serban sent me this beautiful rubberstamp-drawing collage in her entry for Our Solitudes. Of course these mail arted animals deserve a place among all animals here, too.
Thank you very much, Mariana!

Beautiful work of art - a story - created by Keith S. Chambers from the USA.
I published it here, to show you the cool Eurasian Wren postage stamp in front, and on the backside the famous Rabbit, now saying that Cosmo rocks (who's Cosmo?) and the Wasp in the North, connected by a beautiful orange yellow line to the South.
Great mail art, thank you very much, Keith!

Most postcrossers prefer to receive and send out 'regular' postcards.
But sometimes, very few times, there are postcrossers who like selfmade cards.
I think these handmade cards are treasures. Today I'm happy to show you all this great, handdrawn Formosan Black Bear! Created and sent by Alisa from Taiwan.
Thank you very much, Alisa!

Thanks to Snail Mail Snails we are able to exchange Mail Art all-over the world.
So everytime I see a crawling snail, even when he/she is eating my crop instead of delivering mail, a smile arises on my face.
And Mail Art Martha was so kind to send me snails!
Above you can see the Artfull Snail.
Two Heraldic Snails you can see on this map of the United Queendom of Retailia: they are holding the shield (which shows an other animal: the famous Cuckoo).
And on the envelope there's the Snail Mail Snail again working hard to get this mail on its destination.
Thank you very much, to all Mail Snails and to Martha!
