The now legendary Asemics 16 collaborative mail art book project had headquarters right here in this group and in the asemics group!

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

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:

with the Authentic Massacre of the Innocent Image.
