Event Description

Hello Artist, I'm reviving my past mail art call. I'm hoping you join.. My last exhibit was a success.. 

I am currently holding a mail art call for everyone all over the world to join in. Early next year through Spring I will be exhibiting the art that I receive to local libraries and other artisan fairs in my area, Ontario Canada. Specific dates are to be determined. 

I kindly ask all participants to make a handmade bookmark or tag that is inspired by your favorite book.

It can be your favorite book as a child or as an adult, Or even both.

You can use any style, any genre, any theme, any size. any author. You are also welcome to send as many as you wish. As long as there is a hole punch at the top and a small space on the back that states your name and where you are from. 

Please send to:

Erin Young

P.o.Box 7146

Innisfil, Ontario

L9S 1A9 


Also if you could state somewhere on the envelope that it is for the Mail Art Call, "Bookmarks & Tags"

AMAZING IDEA fellow Ontarian!

I will definitely start working on one right away! Hard to pick one favourite book though, that might take the longest amount of time out of the whole project lol :D

Multiple tags/bookmarks in the mail this week. I'm semi-retired from making books, so this is the next best art form for me in the book genre. My favorite books are encyclopedias. I' m currently reading The Blue Tattoo by Margo Mifflin.

So excited to find this call for art work. I've just finished a lovely e course with Rachel Hazell the travelling bookbinder that has helped me reconnect with my passion for all tags paper including mail art! Yay! Tags in the post soon...
