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… Continue

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:…

Geof told me he does all his Mail Art while he's on the road, which is often. Very nice vispo. Thanks Geof!…

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… Continue

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

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.… Continue
