Zine Review: Postal Adventures

Postal Adventures
a mini zine by Marian Krick

Basic (almost too basic) introduction to the world of mail. I suspect though that people need an introduction to mail these days. My grandkids have probably never received a letter or a card in their lives other than from ye olde zinester. Marian in fact starts out this mini zine by saying that she only ever received mail from her grandmothers until she stumbled upon a mail blog. Oh the beautiful irony - using the interwebs to promote snail mail!

This mini-zine points toward some useful blogs, talks about finding penpals, making envelopes from recycled materials and more. I just wish there were more content - maybe more issues of Postal Adventures are on the way?

I've been a mail enthusiast for most of my adult life ... some 40 years. My grandkids all love mail, too. And the Internet has dramatically increased the volume of mail I send and received. I'll have to see if I can find this zine.
