Hello Artist,

I am currently holding a mail art call for everyone all over the world to join in. Early next year through Spring I will be exhibiting the art that I receive to local libraries and other artisan fairs in my area, Ontario Canada. Specific dates are to be determined. 

I kindly ask all participants to make a handmade bookmark or tag that is inspired by your favorite book.

It can be your favorite book as a child or as an adult, Or even both.

You can use any style, any genre, any theme, any size. any author. You are also welcome to send as many as you wish. As long as there is a hole punch at the top and a small space on the back that states your name and where you are from. 

Please send to:

Erin Young

P.o.Box 7146

Innisfil, Ontario

L9S 1A9 


Also if you could state somewhere on the envelope that it is for the Mail Art Call, "Bookmarks & Tags"

I will post all received art to the I.U.O.M.A website as well as Instagram.

The Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year is a word or expression chosen to reflect the passing year in language.

 Post-truth has been nominated as the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year 2016 and is an adjective defined as ‘relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief’. 



Other words which were shortlisted were,

adulting nouninformal

The practice of behaving in a way characteristic of a responsible adult, especially the accomplishment of mundane but necessary tasks.’,

alt-right noun

An ideological grouping associated with extreme conservative or reactionary viewpoints, characterized by a rejection of mainstream politics and by the use of online media to disseminate deliberately controversial content.’,

Brexiteer noun, informal

A person who is in favour of the United Kingdom withdrawing from the European Union.’,

coulrophobia noun Extreme or irrational fear of clowns’,

glass  cliff noun

Used with reference to a situation in which a woman or member of a minority group ascends to a leadership position in challenging circumstances where the risk of failure is high.’

woke adjective, US informal

[originally in African-American usage] Alert to injustice in society, especially racism.’

Project Brief:

It is clear that this selection of words represent a certain mood within society both within Europe and America, and is a representation of the increased sense of unease in the world. 

The question for this Mail-Art project is what does the word ‘Post-truth’ represent? 

Answers on a post-card please to this address:

The Smallprint Company
2-3 Friary Street
Derby DE1 1JF
United Kingdom

Medium/technique: Any
Size: A5 (148 x 210) or A6 (105 x 148mm)

My name is Karen Milszeski, I was a volunteer at Gallery 325 which was in the house of Marilyn Dammann ( Shadow Works). The gallery closed this year and a great deal of the mail art she had received is being cataloged at the Calumet Art Center up in the Keweenaw peninsula. The director of the center Ed Gray was a dear friend of Marilyn's. After we get the mail art cataloged we will have a monthly show of the mail art that she received either by artist or by the calls for art. We were wondering if anyone out there has any of Marilyn's mail art that she created to be added to what we have. Your response would be appreciated. Message me on Facebook or email Check out The Calumet art Center on Facebook or web page. Thanks for your time. Karen
