From: Petrolpetal (0031-0220)

It's awfully annoying to get mail that's been butchered by the postal service - especially a piece of mail art.



​Well, you know what they say, "Sh*t Happens!" Yes, it does happen, but you can't help thinking about the time and care that went into making the mail…

From: Ed Giecek (0022-0120)

We can always count on getting Add & Pass sheets from mail artist Ed Giecek.  Most times Ed includes at least one or two sheets that he's created. Who can miss the all-too-familiar "Frum the desk of ed!" at top, or a large stamped image (Ed's own hand carved stamp) that adorns the page.

Ed's recent…

Add and Pass Sheets Come Back Home

Some mail artists cringe at the mention of Add & Pass sheets. Others are delighted to receive them, and at times may even volunteer to take some from mail artists who are burdened with piles of them.

A&Ps are okay by me - they're fun, but my turnaround time is pretty bad. I tend to let them stack up. Months may go by…

From: Jimmy Connors (0016-0120)

Here's another great postcard from fellow IUOMA-ning member, Jimmy Connors (Germany). Using the 'Ray Johnson Double' image as the base, Jimmy has made a simple and humorous photomontage. The speech bubble reads, "I don't know this Ray Jones guy..."

You may recall that I had used the same image of…

A recent postcard from Jack Lattemann, a.k.a. Cascadia Artpost. A political piece on current happenings!

The artistamp, "American Values, Global Warfare" ties in nicely with the artist's sentiments.

​I've been acquainted with Cheryl for a short time, yet I have come to know of her tremendous output of art. You see, mutual mail art friends have shared Cheryl's asemic writing, visual poetry, artists books and much more. …

The Lyons' Den received mail from Nancy Armstrong (Shreveport LA) on the 13th of January. I had friended Nancy on Facebook last Summer (at Picasso Gaglione's urging), and I've come to admire her artwork.

In my opinion, Nancy's collage work is second to none.  It is quite lovely…

Kristen Hermanny (Illinois) is another artist I enjoy. I may have mentioned this in an earlier post....Kristen and I were first acquainted on Instagram. I admired her envelope art / decorated covers on that platform, and I became curious about who she sent them too. Kristen is the person who introduced me to IUOMA, and I am so glad she did!…

From: Fonda Portales (0005-0120)

Mail came from a new correspondent today - Fonda Portales (Idaho).

I glanced at Fonda’s (like Jane) profile page, and it appears that she is new to this IUOMA platform and to mail art. I discovered that she is a collector and curator, so I guess you can say we are kindred souls. Fonda made a card featuring part…
