The now legendary Asemics 16 collaborative mail art book project had headquarters right here in our equally legendary asemics group!

Many members who remain were participants and we share fond memories.

I'm not here to report Asemics 16 is starting a new edition. But Cheryl Penn - who made it all possible - is doing some A 16 re-documentation from her collection. You might want to check this out and we'll see if she does more. Extraordinary work came from that project that shouldn't be forgotten:

Shawn McMurtagh of California (best known at IUOMA as a collaborator of John M. Bennett) sent me a big package of concrete poetry that I'll use primarily for asemic-concrete hybrids in the AF2 project. If anyone wants to jump in on the foundations I post, feel free. Many thanks to Shawn.

Carlyle Baker (aka the mail artist we know as Carl Baker of Canada) has work featured on Michael Jacobson's New Post-Literate blog, which is very likely the best known asemic writing blog in the world.

Carl Baker has been an ongoing contributor to Asemic Front. Congrats to Carl!

Jayne, I'll do a type-over. And if multiple people use a shared foundation - well, I think that's interesting imho. Thx Jayne
