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!

If you are going to post a piece for the show, please please leave a comment on the Westminster libraries blog too!


So far, we have 13 pieces pledged to the show, including UK Manga commentator Helen McCarthy, who I believe is doing a cross-stich piece, so you're in good company!
