Excerpt of a comment by ginny lloyd on May 12, 2013 at 4:20pm:

The nicest perforator she's seen is a small Italian one at the offices of Artpool Archives in Budapest. Patricia traveled there twice by invitation to lecture about artistamps. In 2007, The Budapest International Artistamp Show was set up in Budapest's Museum of Fine Arts library. Four sheets of Patricia's 1993 commemorative artistamps were included in the exhibition catalogue. She notes that György Galántai and Júlia Klaniczay's Artpool Archives are world-renowned and they've a huge collection of artistamps and Eastern European mail art. Patricia describes a vivid memory of that show, "...emerging from the depths of the subway and seeing the entire Fine Arts Museum building plastered with giant artistamps banners!"
