Mail-Art History

In this group I ask members to place links to sources (new and historic ones) for people who like to do research on the subject of mail-art.

I will moderate this group, so postings not related to the subject will be edited or deleted. There are plenty of places in other groups for that.

A beautiful quote from George Brecht found in one of the links below, ". . . we both walk down the street and love the match-book covers that we see in the gutter." In reference to something he had in common with Ray J.. I think there are a lot of folks here, @IUOMA, that share the same sentiment.

Here is a link to a pdf of a zine published by William S. Wilson which includes essays about Ray Johnson, the New York Correspondence School, and May Wilson.

Is there a way for the IUOMA community to help with this project https://nycsresearch.wordpress.com/  to make more of the material at the Ray Johnson Estate available to researchers?

Mail Art for Neophytes, Part One: An Initiation

Affinities, Ray Johnson

July 30th, 2014

 

On the occasion of Siglio’s publication of two Ray Johnson books, The Paper Snake and Not Nothing: Selected Writings by Ray Johnson, 1954-1994, we have created two blog posts designed as a rudimentary introduction to mail art. Part One includes several quotations from a variety of writers, artists, and critics that suggest a general history of the art form.  Also included are resources for further reading. Part Two sketches a picture of Ray Johnson’s mail art.

I have added some links to www.academia.edu , there are lots of good texts there to find. So when really wanting to dig deep, try there....
