jennifer, remember the old saying - there are no rules in mail art! for the assembling kits i usually keep everything myself as i see it as part of the whole.

Sabrina - I started making linoprints (and other sorts of prints) several years ago and had never before made anything more than 25 copies, and I'd only done that once. So I started this off having no idea if I could do it, and was pleasantly surprised to get there.

William - I can be ruthless! I might find myself rejecting things, which is a bit of a taboo in the mail art world, isn't it? Or separating things, so original and mass produced aren't assembled side-by-side?

ha. i feel the same way jennifer. same when people send in pre-printed postcards for an assembling project where everyone else is sending in work that's been handmade.

William - In my opinion the paper towels is just cheating!

Comment by William M on December 28, 2019 at 9:17am

ah, then maybe in a future issue we'll be in the same issue jennifer. it's interesting to see the different types of paper. though there seems to be a few people that use paper towels instead.

Printing on toilet paper... hmmm, that's an interesting idea. But 40 sheets are quite a lot, must think about it.

I hadn't even considered that these were hand-printed. How silly of me. I should have thought of that! :-) I guess running TP through a printer could potentially be a disaster. Well anyway, I really like your project and it looks awesome!

Terry - I've not done a lot of linocuts, but it's included learning to hand-print (with a baren) as well as print with a press. Given the fragility of the paper, I did these hand-printed, and it actually wan't as bad as I expected - feared - it might be.

Jennifer, what an interesting project! I can't imagine trying to print on toilet paper with my printer! I'd probably have a huge mess. :-)
