Robots Are People Too #1

 
4 pages, A4 size, $1.00US or trade, Yves Albrechts, Postbus 100, 2000 Antwerpen 1, BELGIUM + kapreles(at)gmail.com
Here's a really cool new newsletter from Kapreles (AKA Yves Albrechts), two pages printed on both sides and stapled in the top left hand corner, "...published irregular & meant to get in touch with cool people doing zines, mail art/small press/fellow artists & to keep the spirit of GLOBAL MAIL alive." See, of course you can find art made by folks on the internet, but receiving it on paper in the mail in an actual envelope with postage stamps is truly something else. You got that real paper you can pull out and read on the bus to make your fellow iPad-operating busriders green with envy. They want what you got because they can't buy it at the Apple store, or the Apple App Store, or whatever it is.
RAPT has got a whole bunch of great Kapreles art (this is the Art issue!) I've mentioned before how hypnotic his drawings are, and I can prove it. One time I was on the bus and I missed my stop because I was completely hypnotised by one of his drawings!
He's already got a second issue out. Review coming soon!
