Magnificent Muppet Monsters!
Here's another fabulous letter by my favorite Muppet-artistic pen pal. (I've blogged about his previous offerings, including a Sesame Street artwork postcard and a Shockingly Muppet-licious letter.) The stationery is "Mailing the Muppets Keep-in-touch kit," released by the U.S. Postal service in conjunction with the Jim Henson/Muppets stamps in 2005.
The generally disapproving Sam the Eagle guards the back of the envelope.
Around the edges of each page, inside of each little orange square, he drew his own monster doodles...
...inspired, as he writes, by Walt Kelly, Dr. Seuss, Jim Henson, etc.
Need a closer look at those doodled dudes?
I know I do!
What a treat!
