Cheryl Penn is no longer making the half A4 boekies, 

but she continues collaborations and postcard-size zines:

"Mail Art makes the World a Town".

Here is the latest one received just this week:

just who came up with the word, 'Assembling'?   Richard Kostelanetz?  Who did the 1st collaborative book in this format?  From  all I can see, the 1st was done by Dana Atchley, but I do not remember him using the word, 'Assembling'.  Maybe Richard C remembers.
