Mail Art Received Last Week of January 2011.
How fantastic to place a codex sticker for The World is a Town project on Indonesia. And it came in my favorite format - a boekie. A small book made of beautiful paper - do you know that one of the tests of good paper is the sound it makes? This paper has a wonderful timbre.Continue
Its a heart wrenching sight let me tell you. When I wake on a strange Monday morning in deletist Thought Police mode, all my books scramble for cover. They KNEW, just KNEW today was the day. Selected for recycling and make over is Bones of Contention.Continue
Mail Art received third week of January 2011
I ‘met’ Lindsay through Project 26 – an excellent place to be :-) She posted me my first zine – exciting! It is made from a book recently bought from a second hand store. The Book was called Charlie Farquharsons Korn Allmynack Lindsay writes further - “obviously in satire, most words are spelled incorrectly. One section, Madame Farquharsons Dream Alfabit” was perfect. Yes, another sort of 26 project - the cover says its all – speshully…Continue

I had to blog this, because its just a fantastic. I quoted from the Love Song of Prufrock earlier this week. I have to do it again when confronted with Alfonso’s work :

Combing the white hair of…Continue

Just in case some of you were wondering what happened to your art once it reached the bottom of the world, here is the latest mail art book I have compiled with mail from all over the world. It was begun in July last year. Titled 19th July 2010 – 31 December 2010 it holds many of the mail art pieces I have received during that period which are of similar size. If the artwork was A6 size and the envelope bigger, the envelope was cut to fit. Other than…Continue
Mail Art Received second week January 2011.
Judith has contributed three beautiful photo montages for The World is a Town project. As many of you know, The Novgorod Codex, dating back to the 11th century resulted in an artist’s book The World is a Town which has slowly been fragmented into the world. The writer so long ago laments his own personal position - a surprisingly postmodern global village lament. All the contributions I receive will form Volume 2 of…Continue

You know, I dont know how she does it! That Jen ACTUALLY gets her envelopes to my door! In real life, here, these excellents would NEVER make it. So I'm guessing she has some sort of enveloped control?Continue

Mail Art received first week January 2011.
So here's the thing. You DONT want to meet a chrysalis like this. But, whats the point of a pupa? To change - to move from one form to another. In Julian's World Town I'm guessing that people could be born in Pupa's :-) And, living in Africa means I get an immediate connection to masks. This takes me to Picasso's 1906/07 period too, where he was influenced by African masks and Iberian sculpture. Julian is America, and Picasso was Spanish…Continue

Ok - I got a word - a LARGE FLUXUS WORD from Ruud - an EXCLAMATION word - know what I mean?
My task I believe is to promote this as a word and determine meaning for this word. Promote - tick - I'm starting a Group. Meaning - tick - ZALOP means "ABSOLUTELY NOT NO WAY NEVER NADA NIX". It is to be said in an EMPHATIC…Continue

O dear sometimes this happens? A kind of ZALOP (see next blog) envelope hits your post box. I received this from Marcia Cirillo:Continue
It has been a whack of a mail week from Angie Cope – FAB! I received her Alpha Man which I have seen alpharing around IUOMA, strutting his stuff. Angie kindly forwarded this from a local newspaper as I think the sculpture on Lake Michigan is fantastic.…Continue
Mai Art received last week of December 2010.
Marie has been very quiet - nice to see you back :-)
This is Marie's contribution to The World is a Town Project. I confess to being a little stymied?? But, I'm keen on keeping everything intact and green - the starry world of the un-intact goat. Thanks Marie - good to hear from you…Continue
