"The face of the roar of the sea" from Eduardo.

It is with great pleasure that I will outline and appeal, which is already available all information in the first Mail Art Call that im organized in partnership with the owner of the historic coffee "Cabana dos Parodiantes  " in Salvaterra de Magos, Portugal.

The Theme is "Planet Earth is a large island with a huge ocean around! " 

A new event was created here on IUOMA, where you can access all detailed information, or visit the attached link created for this Mail Art Call

I would like that the event become a great success, then I am counting on your participation and   would like on behalf of the organizers, to thank all those who choose to participate with your Mail Art pieces.
