Thanks for the tip off, I found his website 'Part b' . Interesting to see what he's been up to!

Hi Michael, sorry for delay in replying. We were in communication around 2000-2001 I think. But also, long before that, I once delivered a friend in a sealed box to your International Mail Art Convention, in Lambeth, around about 1990 I reckon. Ben Part was his name, 'Part B' his alias. We then came in and made mail art together. It's a memory I still cherish! John Held Junior was also there, he helped me unload the 'parcel' from my 'delivery van'... Ben was not a small chap! I've long since lost touch with him. Marta Aitchson sent me some of your Ping Pong collaborative stamps which are lovely. Hope you're well and happy! Best wishes, Amrit

Hi Michael, I can't seem to figure out how to invite people after the fact, but I would like to check out my mail art call. Please don't feel obligated to participate, I think it may interest you though :) I'm not soliciting anyone, just a friendly invite to my first attempt at a mail art call :)

I will make an effort to check in often here too. I have really scaled back, in general, with social media, but trying to make more art. I have started the year by making some collages in a small Moleskin. I also hope to do more with photography and video, but we shall see. I'm going to take my time this evening to look through all of your photos here.

I'm very happy to connect with you here!  I miss seeing your work too and commenting on your photos, so maybe this place will serve as a good replacement.  I'll be sending you something in the mail soon!  A big hug to you, Hazel and Archie.

Hi Micheal, I arrived home the other day to the mail art you sent me. Love the collages and the postcards. They are going to become a great part of my already vast postcard collection :) All the best, Molly

You know just after I sent you that message I was photocopying in uni and chose a page out of a mail art book and realised after I photocopied it that it was your work - again! So I must just really like the look of it! I'm sorry don't feel you have to send me anything! If you would like one of my collaged postcards inbox me your address, if not no worries and it was lovely to speak to you :)

Michael, I am a fine art uni student and was just going through my research to bind it and I see your work which I photocopied from a book earlier in the year.. I then see a IUOMA member sticker.. I'm recently a member here so didn't think anything of it before! I love your work so much, I am currently binding it into my research :) Anyway I would love to receive some mail art from you but no worries if not as I will send something to you anyway if you give me your address :) Thanks for inadvertently helping me with my degree! Molly

So Issuu here I come. I wish more of us would join.

I agree with the sentiments in your rant, dear Sir, the post office is the enemy now. I am working on a bookie and one of the design considerations has to be not only weight but thickness, as anything thicker than a butterfly's wing is considered a packet, so they can up the postage outrageously. Ohhh, my stars!

Hey Michael, I realised I omitted two pages of your wonderful book, so have put it right! http://monosemikodachrome.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/from-michael-leigh-uk.html  I want lots of people to see it, if they haven't yet!

P.s. Did you know that I made a feature-length movie honoring my friendship w/ "Blaster" Al called "This Will Explain".  John M.Bennett has sd that he might issue it was a 'commercial' DVD.  really hope that happens.  I posted a link on IUOMA to a movie called "letter to Kem" that's related to "This Will Explain" & that's partially from the "Blasterthon!!!!!!" that was organized as a 2 wknd memorial for Ackerman in BalTimOre last June.

Hi Michael, Life continues to be interesting.  I, too, rarely send out snail mail - even post-cards are prohibitively expensive.  Nonetheless, a little outreach now & then keeps the social juices flowing.  These days, any correspondence w/ someone I knew from 20 or 30 yrs ago is my secret way of finding out whether they're immortal.

Happy Crimble to you all!
