Event Description

I am inviting MailArtists to send me 10 original pieces of work. Any theme. Artwork must be no larger than 8.5 x 11 inches. I will scan your artwork and combine it with 10 pieces of my work and create a one of a kind MailArt Book for each of us. I have done 7 books so far and would like to work with as many Artists as possible. I will mail your original artwork back to you with your book. Mail to : 50 MailArt Books, c/o Sharon Silverman, P.O. Box 1212, Haverhill, MA 01831 USA

Many people have been wondering about the 50 MailArt Books Project. My computer crashed and I have been unable to retrieve my artwork and photos. This has been very upsetting to me. I have to save up money to purchase a new computer....so for now, The 50 MailArt Books Project has to be put on hold. Hopefully I will get things worked out very soon

Mary Ann - Yes, I read about Sharon’s unfortunate news, but I had already shipped my package to her a few days before that.

E-mail Sharon first people - I think she has put this project on hold because of computer problems . . .  It may well be ok now but better safe than sorry (I'm thinking of postage costs)

Hi Sharon! (Sorry, I just noticed that I called you Sarah in my comment below - thinking of the comedian, I guess).

Anyway - wanted to let you know that today I am mailing my 10 pieces of original artwork to you for this 50 mail art book project! What an awesome idea! I've enjoyed viewing some of the books that been completed to date.

Each Original MailArt Book is 20 pages long. Not all the work is shown on the IUOMA Website. Check out the Events page for requirements.

I am documenting as many MailArtists as possible. Looking forward to working with all of you and creating a small MailArt library
