Some stamps that me and Vittore Baroni in Italy collaborated on a couple of years ago.

WElcome Terry.  Yes, I guess those stamps were ping ponging much like all of mail art that enjoys some degree of collaboration. I can't remember how many backs and forths I have exchanged with Vittore but it must be into the hun dreds by now after 35 years or so.

so them stamps are a pinging and a ponging between UK and Italy?  a kind of politicalatelic union

Welcome Carl. I never even knew about the Twitter Art exhibition Andy - did you go?  Occasionally political artistamps but mostly surreal , though politics is a bit surreal too these days Jade!  Yes, Bradford- Global Mail was a good publication - I have a few copies in my archive.

Any UK artists on here make it to Stratford for the Twitter Art Exhibition?

Comment by Jade H on February 24, 2017 at 11:16am

has anyone made any recent political mail art? I would love to see!

Comment by Bradford on February 5, 2017 at 6:37pm

Oh, and of course, even more important to mail art was the publication, Global Mail.

Ah FACTSHEET 5  -  used to get that on a regular basis - very useful!

Comment by Bradford on February 4, 2017 at 10:41pm

That file was started more than 10 years ago, but probably gleaned from posted calls in the 2003-2005 timeframe.

One of my mail art pastimes is archiving calls and contacts for future reference.  Over time, a necrology suggests itself as useful, especially when I get the urge to write a long-ago contact who may still be alive, but has moved away without notice.  FACTSHEET5 was probably my earliest archive of sorts.

Hi Bradford.  Nope- don't remember that name I must admit.  When was this?

Comment by Bradford on February 4, 2017 at 9:57pm

Does anyone remember the UK Mail Artist, "Flowty Faerie"?
