Banana's Add & Pass

This postcard was sent to the den by Anna Banana from BC Canada. The back of the postcard reads "Sticker Tree Project" and asks the recipient to add the stickers from fruits and vegetables to the branches. It took me about 2 months to eat my quota and fill up the branches on this card.
You'll find mangoes, apples and pomegranates plus a fake fruit sticker.

There is a poem on the reverse of the card which reads:

Who will then snicker
When all the leaves
of all the trees
replaced with
corporate stickers?
Anna has been in the mailart network for quite some time and is probably best known for her VILE magazine project (which she co-edited) from 1974-1983. You can read more about her influence and activities in this article from The Spare Room web site.
