Received: Mail-Art's "Attitude Girl" from Diane Keys (Elgin, Illinois, USA)

Mail-art by IUOMA member Diane Keys (Elgin, Illinois, USA)



December 7, 2010 - Diane Keys must surely have already earned some special place in the collective consciousness of mail-art for having started The Roadkill Club, breaking with Rain Rien Nevermind over the issue (and it takes guts to disagree with a guy who once mashed potatoes with Ray). Yet…

Received from Lindsay Stewart, Canada--Zine for the Symbol Minded

Lindsay describes herself as an eager snail mailer, a crafter of goods, and a supporter of hard work. It shows. Her zine was inspired by an old book entitled, Charlie Farquharson's Korn Allmynack, and is an alphabetized key for dream interpretations. Here are a couple of my favorite pages:…

An early winter sunset - from Katerina Nikoltsou



A piece of Greek beauty arrived in my mailbox the other day. A big slice of warm and luscious Greek sunset. And I should add, fragrant (I'm guessing cinnamon this time?). The painting is a perfect dégradé of orange in thick brush strokes. Wouldn't it be great to sip a tea at a table outside a café in front of the sea, best seat of the theater? I actually feel like I am there, in Thessaloniki, witnessing the sun… Continue

Received from the Crafty Hag, USA-St. Nick's Henchman

I haven't heard from the Crafty Hag for ages, but there's nothing like a blast from the past to keep me on my toes with this reminder that the Feast of St. Nicholas is upon us and painful things can happen to those who've been naughty. As she points out: the Krampus, a creature of old Germanic lore, traveled with St. Nicholas. As St. Nick left gifts for the good children, Krampus punished the bad. He arrived with a switch…

Sugar for my mule (braille card) - from Bifidus Jones



I can't believe I nearly missed the braille script on Bifidus's postcard. I was looking at it for several days without noticing anything. I even read Karen Champlin's blog post about a braille card she got from Bifidus, but it only struck me now. I don't know if you can see it, it is very subtly haptic and maybe only meant to be explored by fingers. And since this is Bifidus he placed it on a sea of wavelets for an even stronger… Continue

Recevied from Valentin N. Dolgov, Russian Federation--Taigart

Mr. Dolgov takes advantage of the fact that the envelope is another surface to transform into a work of art. I marvel at the stamps,the flair of his signature, and the postal cancellations. The figure on his card looks a bit astonished, but charming nonetheless. The use of line and minimal color are wonderful. The beard and those buttons divine.…
