Mail art by Guy Bleus to John Evans features a collage of typescript text, handwritten inscriptions, markings in ink, stamps, stickers, and Dymo labels. An image of a horse which appears on the letter also appears on verso in the envelope.
In his letter, Bleus describes to Evans that mail art is the "dream of all my traveling."
On verso, Bleus has glued a cut-out photograph of a man and continued the blue markings. A stamp of two children together with the number seven at the center, found on both sides of the page, symbolizes the seventh birthday of Evans' twin children, which Bleus mentions in his letter.
