Received from Roland Halbritter, Germany--Post für Otto

Ein Mail Art Projekt

I recently received this wonderful book full of a vast range of interpretations of the 19th-century figure of world affairs. The Otto von Bismarck mail art call was active for 18 months and Roland received over 900 pieces, no small response to a complex subject. Inside the front cover is an original stamp above the book number--just one way in which…

Mailart and Me - A mailart call for a show and mailart lecture on October 12th

Whereas before I discovered mailart, I was a science and technology person with a passing interest in art, I can now say I am an artist. Mailart has done this.
