Started by De Villo Sloan. Last reply by Terry Owenby Sep 11, 2017. 11 Replies

Adapted from Wikipedia Asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing. The word asemic means “having no specific semantic content.” With the nonspecificity of asemic writing there comes a vacuum of meaning which is left for the reader to…Continue

Programs converting Asemic Characters to Truetype fonts

Wondering if people in this group have any recommendations for (hopefully free!) programs out there that convert our stunning characters into truetype fonts? (I'm using the 2014 Long-Term-Support version of Ubuntu Linux and Win7 operating systems,…Continue

Hello, Franis... font editors, hopefully free

Somewhere in my electronic piling system I've got an old version of the abbyy peoples' font creator/editor but I think I purchased it. They're a group of Russian's and their font and OCR products at least sound very good from reviews on the web. I…Continue

Comment by Carolyn Cline yesterday

Hope you’re still planning on sending a starter package!  I’m eager to participate!

Comment by De Villo Sloan yesterday

OK Carolyn, you can do as much or as little as you like. Feel free to post here or mail to other members of the group. That refers to folks interested in asemics and vispo.

This discussion has taken place many times at IUOMA: M-a shouldn't induce anxiety and pressure. Just have fun. No expectations or pressure.

My Asemic Front project is to encourage collabs. Anyone who wants to participate should contact me. Obviously folks can initiate collabs on their own too.

Comment by Carolyn Cline yesterday

Thank you for the warm welcome! I had seen asemic art before but didn’t know its name. After being away from mailart for a long time, I am having a swell time checking out all the groups and seeing what everyone is doing. I need to be careful about committing to more than I can handle. I want a mailbox full of interesting and inspiring art! I want to meet EVERYBODY, and try EVERYTHING, but because I am scrupulous about trades I’m going to have to reign myself in somehow. Having only so many nanoseconds in a day and other commitments should help that!

So here I am, Carolyn, AKA rbrlubber, AKA Rubber Lubber (I used to do a lot of 

rubber carving)

Welcome Caroline Cline!

Norma Soulet & Caroline: I will do everything I can to get starter packages to you in the mail by Monday.

Norma, I still have work from you that has not been blogged.

In the meantime, if you want to share any of your asemic work or ask questions, this group is a great place.

Best, DVS

I posted this collab by John M. Bennett (Ohio, USA) & Matthew Stolte (Wisconsin, USA) at Asemic Front.

Hi Carolyn,

I will.

Comment by Carolyn Cline on Friday

I have never done asemic writing before, but in the midst of cluster headaches—3 weeks and counting—I decided to give it a shot. Is anyone in the group willing to swap at least once with me?  

Comment by De Villo Sloan on Wednesday

I'm thrilled to feature asemic poetry by Donmay Donamayoora (Connecticut, USA) at Asemc Front. I think she's really exceptional. A few sample pieces by Donmay above as well.

Comment by Nancy Bell Scott on Monday

Stunning collabs with Carina! And great to see work from Helen again, thanks for posting.

I'm thrilled to have done vispo-asemic collabs with Carina Granlund (Finland). Many thanks to Carina! More documentation at AF:
