The First Ever South African Mail Art Exhibition NEEDS a celebratory Zine or Three.

I have organized the first ever Mail Art Exhibition in South Africa which opens on 15th October 2012 and runs until 4th November 2012. In celebration, I am launching a Zine - title -

Mail Art makes the World a Town.

This is an open call for this collaborative Zine. Details:


Mail Art makes the World a Town. (To be interpreted at the artist's discretion) 


21cm x 15cm (portrait) (A5)

(allow 1.5 cm for binding if you feel it will interfere with your design)

 Number of pages:

25 + (2) = 27

'K, got it now (and remember from the other zine). Here's a question I have and others might: Does weight or thickness of paper matter? Do you have a preference? Thanks ...

Count me in!

Count me in...

What a great title!  I think I get it - providing Nancy is correct, and yes I'd love to participate.

Please count me in. Regards, Bernd

This is something I haven't done before and I'm always up for something new. I'm in.

Not Hi Ng - it's great to have you in the zine. These projects are always fun. BTW - received a bulky package from you this week. Many thanks. More later.

Hi Cheryl .......... would love to join in with Mail Art makes the World a Town. Can a do some visual poetry entries?

Hey Gail  - YES of course - good to have you on board - South African contributors are a MUST! Thank you X

NBS - I have a personal preference for thicker paper - BUT I guess thats up to the artist? DVS, Tiziana, Marcela, Rebecca, Angie, Not Hi nG (But Something?), TICTAC, Sue, John, Bernd, Gail and the others in my inbox - thank you - the response has been WONDERFUL - I'm HUGELY chuffed - MAN! Its a good saturday morning!! :-) XX

Congratulations on the first South African Mail Art Exhibition ever. Uuuuhhhh, must be blond under the died ginger but uh... 27 pages size A5, double sided and signed. All different or is the idea 26 copies of the first one?

Any media allowed?

Eventhough I don't really understand it sounds like fun!

Hey Suus, yes, 27 pages signed and numbered, preferably double sided, size A 5.  How you work on them -  up to you :-) - As I have said before - I handwork my pages so the beginning point is the same - where they end up - well, they differ from each other. Other artists copy an original - up to you.  I also wanted to say, some people have indicated they would like to participate in TWO zines - volume 1 and 2.  If you would like to do that - great - you will need to send TWO sets of 27 pages.  The second set should  also be new work, NOT a copy of what you send for edition one.  Have a good weekend everyone :-) X
