Multi sensory booklet - from Katerina Nikoltsou

My very first mail from Greece arrived the other day. And it smelled wonderful...

I remember reading a comment on Bifidus's haptic group where Katerina was wondering if haptic art was restricted to the sense of touch. I think the general answer was a sort of a "yes but no" type of answer, after which Katerina came up with this booklet where she cleverly combined multi sensory goodies. After going… Continue

Crossroads nr2 - from Douglas Galloway

If you scroll down my blog you will find the first postcard I got from Douglas Galloway a couple of weeks ago. I called it crossroads at the time. This one is the grid version of it, a detail of the beautifully named "South of Market" from the lattice series. I have seen a couple of other versions of the grid prints on IUOMA blogs, and they nicely complement each other, it's interesting to observe their growth in the blogging world… Continue

A Blog post for Frank Odette - "etc"

THIS I am very privileged to receive - a complete artist's book by Frank Odette in Australia titled "etc"

This volume is drawn, collaged, handwritten and inked into a soft cover commercially bought graph book. But Frank has removed it so far from its original intent - it now exists as the journey of Coyne and Frank - the etc travels of these two. "In 1985 Coyne said goodbye to his wife and kids and left to play a beer festival in… Continue

IUOMA Cat DayThe Second flood has arrived - cards from Lilac Girl, Lisa, Bifidus Val and Katerina

Mail Art received 24th November 2010

The trickle became a flood with all the cat cards jostling for space in the post box - the catnip made them settle down of course!

The first I opened was from Lilac Girl - a great first tactile card swop - this cat looks as grumpy as Jelly Bean! I hope there will be more!!

Then from Lisa at Skybridge Studios (wanted to tell you I love that studio name by the way!) her calming cat card with a… Continue

And Lilac Girl + kitties from USA send this Cat Day Mail Art card

The cars possibly in a cat's eye and the saying also for the people I guess: Life is a Highway. How nice!

This mailart card from Bifidus Jones is very interesting with the handwriting, the humor, the chess diagram and everything.

Pynchon In Public Day

The first 'Pynchon In Public Day' is planned for 8th May 2011. All ideas are welcome. If you do not know of Pynchon, I suggest reading 'The Crying of Lot 49'. A key part of the plot is W.A.S.T.E., an underground mail network, complete with its own mail boxes, stamps and a sub-culture of those who avoid the 'official' postal service. Examples of invited work includes mail-art that feature muted post horns, W.A.S.T.E. insignia, faux stamps, unofficial postal routes and photographs of people…

Fabric postcard - from Jen Staggs

When I am lucky to find mail art in my mailbox I always think about what the postman must have thought of it (I know, it's silly). I am picturing him with a big smile on his face, and I am sure he smiled today, as I did when I found Jen's card.

Needle and thread have no secret for the queen of vintage. There is no limit to what can be sewed. Look at those stamps! (my favorite part of the card). I didn't even know you could do… Continue

Great Mail-Art from Michalis Kotsaris

I am notoriously bad at scanning & posting the mail-art I recieve. This piece came a few weeks ago from Michalis Kotsaris in Greece. How this was done is beyond me, but I have spent many cups of coffee staring at it. Thank you Michalis! -AWJ-

Received from Douglas Galloway

I've noticed that Douglas has been extremely busy of late and this is the one he's sent me. I've only just noticed that most of the artwork is guitars. Nice one Douglas!
