I'm just interested to see how many mail artists in the UK right now. Are you one?

Some stamps that me and Vittore Baroni in Italy collaborated on a couple of years ago.

Welcome Penny,  I'm sure you'll find plenty of culture vultures and like minds here in the UK to exchange mail art with you. All the best,  Michael

Hi Martha, Glad it's not just me that gets those scary "this is insecure log in" doodads!   Not read any Harry Potter either - not all the way through - Hazel and I used to read them to Archie when he was little - a right of passage at the time it seems.  He liked the films too - and so we had to go too - enjoyable nonsense. Outsiders are those interesting artists who never went to art school and produce weird and infantile , slightly crazy artworks on the backs of shirt collars, tin cans and old inner soles. Sounds a bit like mail art to me!   I got most of that stuff through the post in the good old days. I imagine it still goes on today - people making friends by sending postcards made of cheese etc.  I love it - but I have a shed full and don't want anymore.  Time for a silly collage -actually thi s is me trying to sort out some mail in the back room.

Yes I also get that warning by my over zealous virus checker, Avast. I ignore it. 

I hope I did not give the impression that I actually read  Harry Potter. I tried to read the first one and could not, the English is so infantile. And don't tell me it is for children, so is Alice in Wonderland, Tom Sawyer, Robinson Crusoe, all of  Jules Verne, etc. 

I think 'the Others' may do, following your suggestion but shorter. Or 'Outsiders'?

Good luck with your invaluable work, Michael. I have returned to childhood and only do things to amuse myself , but they take time too. Arrrgh!

HI Jade and Martha,  Not very actice participant in the snail mail anymore but working on a big mail art archive show that will be seen in Manchester in August so that will take up a lot of time ( has already !).  40+ years of mail can be a devil to sort through!  Still online fo course- where most of my mail arting ends up these days - http://a1mailart.blogspot.com/

Insecure connections here apparently - that's what it says everytime I log in - do you get that too?

Mugglers?  I just call them , those other folks.  Those sensible people who don't spend a small fortune on stamps!

I put my outside blog but of course you can see my work also in my page here.

I am, Jade H, so active in mail art that I haven't got the time for much else. Gets me in the bad books of the family, but then you mail arters( great expression! ) are more interesting.

Since you seem very good at this, can you think what to call those who are not mail arters, be them artists or not? Something in the style of Harry Potter's 'mugglers', I have been thinking about this for a long time and cannot come out with anything. 

Your ideas will be much appreciated.

Welcome Emma - good to see you here!

Hope you are enjoying the hot heat.

A friend just flew out from here at the bottom to spend time living in a tent at WOMAD.  The U.K. in a tent.  Now that's my ideal of living!

Meanwhile, aren't the pigeons at Trafalgar Square building themselves coops?
