"Sam - Go for less rather than more? I started off (in the UK) thinking the same as you, but as my network of contacts has grown, know there are some people I really appreciate getting pieces from, so I spend on the postage to them wherever they are…"
I started a mail-art project, called the C-Post Project, because In this world of far-reaching standardization I think it is important that we honor the ability of humankind to create unique artwork. This project is about showing this quality.
I am a Dutch artist and started an envelope series to send to artists all over the world that have inspired me.
Participants will receive an envelope with a mono/multi print and they can return one back (in any which way they like). In addition, I would love to find a favorite poem/quote/saying/motto to go with it.
The creation of the C-Post Project of course will take time. After at least one year I will organize an exhibition of the received materials as a colorful reminder that people all over the world are and will be connected.
And that there is beauty everywhere!

Sam - Go for less rather than more? I started off (in the UK) thinking the same as you, but as my network of contacts has grown, know there are some people I really appreciate getting pieces from, so I spend on the postage to them wherever they are rather than send more to people within my own country. The price of mailing overseas is still less than the price of a cup of coffee in any of our cafes.
