the Mailart Typeface arrived

I just received a CD of the Mailart Typeface. Keith Bates made a font from letters, numbers, punctuation marks and symbols sent by mailartists around the world. He assigned me capital H. I made the H with postage stamp perforation shapes on either side of the sides and a Ray Johnson bunny head in the center of the middle bar.

The Mailart Typeface project was initially by invitation to mailartists known for strong graphic qualities in their work, but some keystrokes were allocated to interested individuals looking at the project Web site and others who were recommended by participating artists.
