In connection with the forthcoming 'Mail2Maastricht' Exhibition, I've gotten hold of the Jan van Eyck Academie's publication on the Agora Network and various Fandangos. The booklet documents various Mail Art magazines and occasional publications that existed in the 60's and 70s. I suspect that they continued well into the 80's and the 90's too.
What I would like to ask is:
ARE THERE ANY MAIL ART MAGAZINES CURRENTLY IN EXISTENCE (in printed form)?
You can start one!
Hi there Val! :-)
Here are a couple suggestions for you, in regards to mail art magazines in printed format:
Gianni Simone's "Kairan" is excellent; you can find him here on the IUOMA, and also on the Ning group "We Make Zines". I believe he's up to issue number 16 now...

I just received a recent issue of "Node Pajomo", which is a really fun mail art zine that lists mail art projects all around the world. You can find out more info at: http://ronsen.org/monkminkpinkpunk/17/nodepajomo.html
And I would be happy to send you an issue of the mail art zine that I put out awhile ago called "Red Letter Day". I keep saying I'm going to complete issue #4, and this might just be the year that I make good on that promise! :-)
Just send me a message over on my home page, and let me know what you think...
Published them all at:
in high resolution, so anybody can print them at home.
