Here is the mail monster she drew on the return envelope, with the mail monster I created (collage).
And the stamp I used to send it back is the global rate moon, shown, obviously, at Night, with a dark blue background. It was issued in 2016 and the rate back then was $1.20. Then in 2017 the rate was cut to $1.15, where it will stay through at least 2019. (Image from Eva's blog).I like to think the mail monsters are more active during the night.
The Moon stamps come in a sheet of ten with a great background (none of the other global rate stamps look so nice, being printed on white).

I like the mail monster has four arms, I picture them whirling around like your collage.ReplyDelete
Got to have lots of arms to make the most of the rapid mail stream inside the machines (which is where I imagine the monsters live).Delete
The mail monster's right foot scares me, a little. Nighttime is surely the best time for monsters.ReplyDelete
It is just the right amount of wrong, isn't it.Delete
Thanks for re-posting the envelope here. The Moon stamp is one that I'm never tired to see on the letters.ReplyDelete
But, anyway, it's always night inside the mail boxes and the mail machines...
Ha, I think you're right! Although I think I saw a picture of a plexiglass see-through one at Heathrow airport...Delete
