Little Big Stories - Stories on a small scale

Can you tell a story in words and pictures and fit it on a postcard? If so Westminster Library Service want to see your stories for display in Pimlico library!

I'm running a mailart show with Westminster Libraries in London, for a display in Pimlico library from March 25, 2011, so the deadline for this call is March 11th. The works will be on the walls for 2 weeks or so.

What we want is postcard sized (up to A5 should be fine - feel free to interpret this as you wish) stories from mailartists, comics creators and anyone else who can tell a story. The works will go up on the walls of the library as a backdrop to talks by comics creators and artists, and I may even do a talk about mailart.

Ultimately, the idea is to produce a book of all the stories which will go on the shelves of Pimlico library, so your stories will be immortalised, but this isn't yet confirmed. 

We'd love to get as many Little Big stories as possible, so if you intend to send us one, or want to swap some ideas, drop in and lets talk!

It must be taking a world tour via the Postal Services. Lol!
Do you want me to send you a file of it? At least it could get posted. Anyway, thanks for letting me know, Andy. Cheers.

Thanks. I'm glad you like it. Actually, your pretty amazing yourself as this show must be a huge undertaking to organize. My regret is that I can't check it out in person- too far to walk to;)
Thanks again for letting me know.

H Louise - I think your piece may have arrived yesterday (We're still being deluged!) but I haven't got around to scanning them yet. Hopefully should have an update for you tonight. If you have a scan though, post it up here and I can verify if I've seen it

Hi Andy,
It looks as if my piece got lost in the "Postal Aether". I did scan it before I sent it off. Would you still like a copy of it?

Hi Jenny

If you send it and it gets to us before Thursday we may be able to add it to the show

If it arrives layer, the show runs for a month but may still squeeze in for the last week. Send it and see!

Hi Andy

I have finally done spomething for this but I think I have missed the deadline. Can I still send it or keep it for later?
