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

I'm posting a series of collabs by Diane Keys, Jim Leftwich & me at Asemic Front 2. AF2 is still open for anyone who wants to do collabs.

I've posted selections from a new asemic minimalism series by Donmay Donamayoora (Connecticut, USA) at Asemic Front 2.

I think these are truly minimalist in every artistic sense. I'm always hoping for minimal work for AF2. Thx to Donmay.

I recently completed a group of collabs with Jayne B. Lyons (Minnesota, USA) and I'm using for Asemic Front. The call is still going!

06.10.19 Mister De Villo Sloan, Wow!... a very professional book look...& a most generous & ambitious offer on the part of Ms. Sharon Silverman  (you Mister De Villo of course,  are most deserving). I'm gonna try to get my act together & see if she can tolerate my brand of postal folly.Thanks for posting, Richard Canard

I had a wonderful experience doing collabs with the great Sharon Silverman (Massachusetts, USA) that comprise Volume 18 in her 50 Mail Art Books project. I have documented the book I received from Sharon here as an IUOMA blog:

I know group member Nancy Bell Scott has a book in the series. Folks who have vispo in this series please share info with the group!

Sharon's project is definitely asemic-vispo friendly.

And many thanx to Sharon Silverman.
