Mailart Inventory and Plan

Posted on February 14, 2011 at 10:35pm 4 Comments

I've been fielding requests from friends wanting mailart, and I want to keep things straight, so I'm going to make my first blog post a listing of everything I've sent (and am planning to send) and received, and update it as things progress.

Whenever I post new pictures, I'll update this and republish it. I hope you all enjoy.

Posted on December 15, 2010 at 4:48pm 2 Comments

As I've been playing with collage more in my mailart, I've been looking for snips of old text that correspond with the theme of a piece. Working in a library as I do, I have access to discarded books, but it's often tricky to get exactly what I'm looking for.

Recently I began fooling around with Google Books, and I'm falling in love with it as a source for old texts. I can do a keyword search and limit to "Full View" in the…
