Ask Anything

There are a lot of basic questions on Mail Art that are often asked and answered. This group might be the first place to look for answers. I will do my best to answer, but hope that other members can help out as well.

Rec’d this envelope with goodies last week.  It was opened carelessly.  Can someone help me identify “Katie” in Munich?  Thank you!

If you think they may be on IUOMA, go to the 'Mail Artists Profiles' tab at the top of this page, choose 'Overview All Members' then 'Advanced Search' and select Romania. There are 33 on the list to choose from.

How can I locate Mail Artists from Romania. A person sent me art but I can not read their name?

How do  I post my photos here now.  I have some inform the past., I joined in 2015.   I tried  to post photos  several times last spring.

 I have asked friends on this site, & have tried different ways, they say they don't know either.  

I tried the mobile phone email photos last week, nothing posted

Wow, I totally missed that mail art call so thanks for posting the link to the book by Paulo Teles, William M. That is just wonderful. I love how he created that book.

Another possibility is to look at your browser's history and search it for the words such as "train art mail"

Comment by William M on January 31, 2022 at 9:00am

Ray, I think that may be the project Paulo Teles is doing.

Comment by Ray Haley on January 31, 2022 at 6:37am

I saw something here (in IUOMA) about "Train Art mail" and would like some information about it. Unfortunately, I can't find my way back to where I saw it to begin with!

Please advise.

Thanks, Ray Haley
