Mail Art received third week of January 2011
I ‘met’ Lindsay through Project 26 – an excellent place to be :-) She posted me my first zine – exciting! It is made from a book recently bought from a second hand store. The Book was called Charlie Farquharsons Korn Allmynack Lindsay writes further - “obviously in satire, most words are spelled incorrectly. One section, Madame Farquharsons Dream Alfabit” was perfect. Yes, another sort of 26 project - the cover says its all – speshully…Continue

ART NATION is a give-away clue...guarded through the postal…Continue

I have decided that, as part of "documentation" for this little project, I would add a posting here every month or so - a sort of progress report - and a record of how the project grows or changes, choices made and decisions taken. I have already started posting scans of finished, or near finished pages in a photo album on this site and I am making plans for some sort of written documentation for the projects end, so things are sort of coming together.
At the moment, one month in…Continue

As some of you know, I sing and write music as well as make mail art. I've noticed lately that I often respond to questions with song lyrics! Does anyone else do that? I don't do it on purpose, it's just that there seem to be song lyrics to fit any and all occasions!

musty old bookstores, with all their glories, are common in China. something extraordinary, however, is a marvellous stash of postal ephemera which i found hiding amidst the books today!
