20 people reacted on the idea of a collaborative book. I decided to "a first in first take" approach. Because you were the first to react the book will go to you and after that you'll mail it to John Bennett.

Juanita, in a letter that accompanies the mail art book I talk about Lois Klassen (she combines quilts into comforters, blankets for refugee camps all over the world). You'll find her address in the letter but she has also a very good blog that describes her art interventions: http://loiszing.blogs.com/
She's Canadian by the way and not on IUOMA.
Mailed you a compilation mail art book this weekend. A shop near my job went bankrupt and they gave away their musical scores.
So I worked in such a book for you. Hope you'll enjoy this when it reaches you.
there are many new letter boxes from around the world on my web album: http://picasaweb.google.com/bnet.album
which is also your contributions through mail and e-mail.
Thanks for your attention ____ _@Y Bruno Capatti
