Sylvia Tiger-girl Kleindinst



Sylvia is a noted collector & designer of paper dolls, but also collects all sorts of paper ephemera, some of which ends up cycled through her mail art & other projects. One common form of mail art is to take a card from another mail artist, add to it or change it in some way, & send it on. But in this case, Sylvia joins mail art to an earlier era altogether. She began with a piece of mail from 1930 which she laminated to postcard stock, adding on the side shown here two other vintage paper bits, including a baseball-card-sized advertisement card for J. C. Root Groceries & Provisions, an ad that looks rather Victorian though Sylvia could probably provide a more credible date for this style of ad-card. The address side has yet another baseballcard-sized advertising-card for Ellsworth Fresh & Salt Meats.
