Corresponding with Erich means entering a world of make believe where lines are simple and borders are easily crossed. The Zine page call for Mail Art Makes the World a Town resulted in a full visual narrative titled The story of Sigi.
This is a page from a chapbook titled Annie Fuente uns Carlo. Please excuse the varying degrees of light on the images - I am chasing the sun around the house!
From David Delliafiora (Australia) - (Field Study), a book called Frank and Perforate. It sort of reminds me of Frank and John. The title of course perfectly validates the contents of this artists book.
Using hand canceling and perforations onto/into what looks like an ancient stamp catalogue, David perpetuates and fully corroborates book art based in the mail art genre.
From Samuel Montalvetti (Argentini) a brim filled package which includes this book - similar in content to Davids, but executed in Samuel's own unique style.
As most of us know, Samuel creates small book works by recycling his envelopes - often creating add and pass projects - this one aint going NOWHERE!
Included in Samuels packed package where his Zine pages and his continuing series of Visual Poetry booklets - I am really pleased to be building a collection of these:-)
From Guido Vermeulen (Belgium) - Travels with Collages - I think I'm changing the library from small books to ALL books - I cant exclude ONE of the works I have received - size has become an irrelevant issue!
In an expected Guido envelope - The Three sisters of Fate - so much a part of Guido's book as I page through.
Double spread from the book - I think Guido has managed to source Max Ernst's material...
Original Collage too :-) from the Zine series
MANY thanks guys - come on GIRLS - where are your books?
