i got an envelope from opal moiety today with a S.F. return address and CA postmark.  seems 'real'  but this thread has made me question everything. lol


it had a bunch of pages torn out of the book of mormon.

nothing warms my heart more than such casual heresy  disbursed via post.  :)  happy early new year everyone!!

Woh Jen Miltenberger, an add & pass with contributions by Jim Leftwich & John Bennett)! I don't play favorites! After you've been in m-a for awhile you get friends!

Did you add to it, Jen? I'd definitely add and pass along. Then Jim and John can say they collabed with you ;)

I am a guilty add and pass grabber. If I like it, I keep it! But that's greedy and I do have an archive.

I agree with Susan, for the same reasons. Although, the list of words..... Can you add to the back or you can you add another page?

It looks finished to me. But I tend to like things that are not cluttered.

I seem to have taken in many homeless add and passes in the last year and this one came in a recent random stack. Over ten years old, added by John and Jim. Debating if should add and send out in circulation again or pass it back. ;)

I love looking closely. All the names-the artist Rosenquist, art editors, museum directors, more. Thanks for posting this. We sometimes lose sight of our beginning.”

Thx Mim, a look at the small print in that a&p is fascinating. I spy Bill Wilson. I spy Irene Dogmatic. She's still in Berkeley and friends w/ many of us on FB. Isn't that wild?

How terrific to see that. I haven’t ooked at my Ray Johnson bio book in awhile. I’ll check to see if there are any examples in it.

I just came across this scan of a Ray Johnson Add & Pass and thought you might like to see an actual A&P from the New York Correspondance School. Richard C or CrackerJack could tell us more, but my understanding is that Ray Johnson's Add & Passes were often very directed & based on themes.

Appreciate the mail, Mel Anie. I'm feeling so awful because things meaning mail incoming is piling up on my studio table. I will get to all of it, and I will add pass divide etc all things that call for it. Meanwhile, I've been grabbing an old postcard or artist card and adding a circle or text to it. It's fast and relieves my stress. See you all in the mail eventually. Peace and love
