I have two little books (both fit in a normal envelope). They are ready to travel on. 

One started by Valentina Cozzi and one started by C.Canfeld. Candidates?

Sneak preview of my contribution in the Canfield copy:

I've been a little away from IUOMA for a couple of months. But I'm back. Please count me in for a round-robin related to Mail Art Books. Thanks!

Erin and Susan, I will send you an e-mail in a few minutes, just so you have a contact point for me other than my mailing address. Discussion might be easier then (especially because I still can't send messages on the ning).

I'm interested, Susan and Mel Anie. I would be happy to contribute a book or another format to pass. Place is always a theme I'm interested in.

I love a small group round robin like this, Susan. Please count me in for books and I'm happy to hear your ideas. I like it when each person sends a starter so there are four books in motion at the same time. Each book can have its own 'theme' and everyone ends up with a book at the end.

I have an idea for a collaborative mail art project that I hope others will be interested in: It is a small group round-robin. Different from Add&Pass in that each collaborative group would have no more than 4 people and there would be some unifying aspect--a theme (e.g., imaginary animals, Winter, dreams, etc.), a format (e.g., book, collage, mixed media, etc.), a color, or anything else that would give the project some unity. It may work best if the members of the group are set before the project starts and decide on the unifying aspect together, but it could also be one person suggesting the unifier and others joining. Person 1 does a start piece and sends it to Person 2, who works on it and sends it to Person 3, etc. After the last person does their work it goes back to Person 1, and it can go around again (and again...), or end at that point. 

   I have some ideas for projects but would like to hear from other Mail Artists who are interested and we can discuss how to proceed.

I spent several years making artist's books and love doing collaborative projects, so please let me know how this group operates.
