I've posted selections from a new asemic minimalism series by Donmay Donamayoora (Connecticut, USA) at Asemic Front 2.

I think these are truly minimalist in every artistic sense. I'm always hoping for minimal work for AF2. Thx to Donmay.

I recently completed a group of collabs with Jayne B. Lyons (Minnesota, USA) and I'm using for Asemic Front. The call is still going!

06.10.19 Mister De Villo Sloan, Wow!... a very professional book look...& a most generous & ambitious offer on the part of Ms. Sharon Silverman  (you Mister De Villo of course,  are most deserving). I'm gonna try to get my act together & see if she can tolerate my brand of postal folly.Thanks for posting, Richard Canard

I had a wonderful experience doing collabs with the great Sharon Silverman (Massachusetts, USA) that comprise Volume 18 in her 50 Mail Art Books project. I have documented the book I received from Sharon here as an IUOMA blog:

I know group member Nancy Bell Scott has a book in the series. Folks who have vispo in this series please share info with the group!

Sharon's project is definitely asemic-vispo friendly.

And many thanx to Sharon Silverman.

By now many in the network have heard of the sad passing of the great Steve Dalachinsky of NYC. He was one of the great contemporary mail artists, a jazz musician, poet, visual poet who impacted many of us.

I feel very fortunate that I included two collabs by Steve Dalachinsky, our ol' bud Ficus strangulensis & Lin Tarczynski in Asemic Front. Here they are in memory of Steve. His body of work will ensure that he will be remembered for a long time.

Thanks, Nancy!

I'm sure some group members have already received cards from The Serial Asemist: An anonymous asemic writer apparently located in Spain. I was thrilled to receive a card and have used it for Asemic Front. Great work Serial Asemicst, whoever you are!

Jason Motsch, that is fantastic.
