This is a trio of fruit themed mail art pieces I made. The collage images are taken from various magazines and mail order catalogs. It’s fun to incorporate food into mail art. I find a delicious looking piece of mail is an attention-getter. Fruit themed mail feels rather natural for this Florida girl.
The “Orange you glad?” postcard pictures a lot of the delicious yellow and orange colored fruits we love to eat here in the South. The “rooty tooty fruity” card is an artist trading card (2.5″ x 3.5″). The green mesh background makes it feel like the fruits are inside a mesh produce bag. The “Going up the apples and pears” postcard is named after an archaic cockney rhyming slang. Apples and pears = stairs.
