I am curious how members view the phenomenon of spontaneous asemics and if they ever experience something like I did this afternoon. I was tidying my workspace and while lifting a pile of paper I detected marks of ink that got stuck to the plastic…Continue

Hi I am new here because by chance I saw your question. I have used Fontographer to create my own fonts from drawings and it is easy and free. It will work with W7, I think. You need a painting /graphic program to create tiny drawings of each…Continue

Definition of Asemic Writing - Adapted from Wikipedia

Nancy, this one is a minimalist you! It's so busily tranquil. 

DVS, if we're not worrying about genre, I'd love to cross some sundried  fragments to a JL foundation, please.

Comment by Yvonne Kettner on July 17, 2021 at 11:06pm

I would like to work on one too please.

Thanks for posting Nancy (NBS). "Bust Stop" (this is in the Yoma People's Gallery of Obsolete Technology & Cattle Mutations too?) is a stunner, just hitting me (totally subjective) that the work achieves a unity. It's perfection in a Classical sense (I can feel NBS blushing in her Maine tower). Vispo relies so heavily on fragmentation & I guess disruption that a piece like "Bus Stop" is an unusual but welcome experience.

Original Jim Leftwich foundations from AF2 to Artbyjac, BG, Sir Litter Richard plus other sundries. 

Deepest thanx to JL for always thinking of AF and generously sending m-a.

Can't wait to see some new collabs.

BTW - In terms of new pieces, I don't even know if you could call them :asemic." So let's not worry about genre.

I would like to work on one or 2 as well,thank you

Dare Mister De Villo Sloan,  ...Yes, please.  I would be pleased  to receive a few Jim Leftwich "foundations".   SinCelery, Richard Canard

Snail mail collab by me (De Villo Sloan) & Jim Leftwich. (2015 - completed 2021). I have a bunch of JL foundations I would be pleased to send you some if you're interested in sort of an add & pass asemics.

Longtime group member John M. Bennett has just released a major new book that includes his vispo & some tremendous lyric poems with vispo elements!

Deepest thanks to JMB for all his contributions to our group.

the postcard image from Alan Brignull just below beginning "Bero tarna-dar" came with his most recent mailart sending. I find it charming.
