Mail art or mail craft?

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).

Friends & Faux Artistamp/Postcard Project

This is my latest project, beginning April 2010. I will be sending out postcards with one of my own faux postage stamps attached, plus spaces for a gallery of 'additions'. The postcards will travel from person to person, until the gallery is full, and then I will put a zine together from the completed (and probably some MIA) postcards, to document the project.

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…

The first mini-zine is available here, the second is in preparation, and the 3rd, 4th & 5th will be not too far behind!

Letters of Fiction

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!

Without further ado...
