Tiny Art

This is a group for mail artists who share an affinity for tiny art!  Original tiny art is a unique subset of artistry because it's often more accessible, more easily circulated through postal services, and cheaper to create than larger works."Tiny" is a subjective and not rooted in specific measurements, but let's go with "fits in the palm of my hand" as a general guideline.Paintings, prints, sculptures, doodles...etc.  If it's tiny mail art, you should share it here! See More

ABC BOOK at Mail to Bonniediva

July 16, 2023 to July 15, 2024
I love to make ABC books… like the kind you see for children, but instead of the usual “A is for Apple,” I like to use obscure words not usually found in a child’s ABC book, like “A is for Anxiety,” “B is for “Bacchanalia,” “C is for Chihuahua,” etc. Please join me in creating this masterpiece of whimsy! To be clear: you create one page of anything starting with your letter. The size of your page doesn't matter. Then you send me your page and I add it to my ABC book.Then I photograph/scan the…See More

Hello Margaret, for "Brain Cell", send in the mail a nice envelope and/or card

with a rubber stamp or design of your creation (I often send my eraser stampings)

to Ryosuke Cohen in Japan, and he will print it on some 50 copies of  Brain Cell

and send one to you, too:

my stampings on Brain Cell #1149:

There will be a list of the 50 contributors with their mail addresses

if you wish to exchange with any or all.
