June 26, 2011 - After a weekend of "The Grigster Walks Among Us," vispo, and asemic writing, it was a pleasure indeed to simply enjoy some tried-and-true, reliable Fluxus mail-art from Tiziana. This packet, received some time ago, included her chapter for Cheryl Penn's (South Africa) Project 26 collaborative book project. I by no means blogged every chapter. I'll probably blog a few more from this historic effort. Here are a few selected scans from Tiziana Baracchi's chapter:

Tiziana also included this great stamp sheet depicting some well-known Fluxus-mail-artists:


A belated thanks, Tiziana, for this chapter and mail-art. Tiziana is involved in all kinds of interesting projects, most recently some interesting work with poetry. Also a good chance to practice your Italian:
