I have been giving this some thought, and I think that mail art might actually be a genre within which the boundaries between art and craft are so blurred that they actually cease to matter/exist at all (stamp-carving - indisputably a craft - is, after all, one of the mainstays of the mail art movement).

PM me with your postal address, if you would like to receive one of the postcards, and find out how to receive a FREE copy of…Continue
Going Postal is a new project, started in 2010. I am asking for contributions of postal/mail art-themed ATCs.

This project is an homage to my own obsession for all things postal, combined with curiosity about the different…Continue
This is my oldest mail art (mail craft?) project, although being of a somewhat specialist nature, has not had many entries so far! But it's ongoing, so that's fine :-)

I am hoping perhaps some of my Mail Art friends will be interested in this project. I am wishing to join not only letter writing but creative writing. It is artistic in its own right. You can see the Letters of Fiction website for more information on the project. You can also contact me.
Thanks for looking!

I make most of my posts at my mail blog Birth of a Notion but I want to be more out there in the mail art community too. So i thought I would post a couple things here. My camera sucks but I have started using my scanner :D…
