The postie has just brought me the first half of the documentation I am doing for my on-going 'Stamps for Yoko' project (yes it has a fancy name now) and it is slowly turning into a thing of small and modest beauty; you could say, rather like the lady herself!I can hardly wait to finish it off and send it all out but patience is a virtue (I am repeatedly told) and there is still space for a couple more designs to be included.  Any takers?See More

Due Date:December 31, 2019What to Do:1. Create any size art in any medium, then send it to me at Pam Chatfield / PO Box 2023 / Lowell, MA 01851 / USA.  So it doesn't get confused with my other mail art, please let me know it's for the Journal Pages project by writing 'Journal Pages' on the envelope or adding a note inside the envelope.  If you don't let me know, it won't be included in the journal.  I don't want to add someone unless I know they want to participate. 2.

"I thought of a box because it would allow a bit more creative freedom than a book.  Cascadia likes his stamps and chunky cards for one - if he was interested.  Also, everyone would find themselves a different box so each of the finished…"

Hannah Höch (fan club)

Some mail artists add a stamp print to their mail art, saying 'Hannah Hoch Fan Club'.Until I received these stamp prints I never had heard of this artist, who was born 1st of November 1889. She has been a collage / photomontage pioneer. She was part of the Dada movement and also became involved in the De Stijl art movement. For anyone who has a Hannah Höch Fan Club Stamp (and interested…See More

I really ought to have put some thought into this posting but it is a spur of the moment thing and maybe it will be the better for it.Hard to miss the Global (whatever that means) strike being called for today to draw attention to the vast problems facing the world's equilibrium. I imagine that most people involved in the Eternal Network are to some extent sympathetic to the causes and have an awareness of the difficulties involved in 'climate change'. yet I can't help thinking we may be part…See More

Welcome to Occussi-Ambeno, Mary Anne!

I think they're perfect...And we'll always know between us when they were sent. There is one of those faint orange digital bar codes across all the stamps (the artistamps and the U.K. stamp). The U.S. does that, too. I suppose they think that their superior new technology leaves the postcard "prettier." Little do they appreciate that mail artists love the roughed-up and postmarked "look!"  I still love it.

Hi Mary Anne! It arrived! You were quite brave to post it on that specific day. I just love doing “edgy” things through the post, don’t you? Something is already on its way back to you...

Earthling, this may be the last but certainly it´s not the least welcome message to IUOMA you are going to receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly uncharted corner of the faraway universe called “Republik van Patland”. I would love to be the other end if you wish to trade mail art with a celestial mail artist.  If that is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:

The Celestial Scribe
Terrene Embassy
Republik van Patland
Caixa Postal 461
Curitiba-PR
80011-970
Brazil

I look forward to seeing a piece of yours in my terrene mailbox. I´ll do my homework after receiving your artwork. This is nothing less than a celestial promise.  I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland Official Envelope Provider.

In regards to your comment on my 50 MailArt Book Project...Whatever you would like to do is fine with me. Just write a note to me with your intentions when you send in your art. My goal was to reach a large group of MailArtists from different countries around the world and to create a small body of work that I will pass on to my grandchildren. I want them to understand that art brings people together. Especially today, when I see so much that is trying to pull people apart, I feel that sharing artwork is one small way to bring people together. Looking forward to seeing your work, Best Regards...Sharon

blog the seventh: air mails

Posted on September 16, 2019 at 2:10am 0 Comments

I have a great liking for artistamps and keep any that come my way in a set of four albums.  Luckily the standard size spring-back album, although a little old fashioned, is just the right size to accommodate full sheets, as well as pages of individual stamps, cards and envelopes,  so the whole thing gets to look better and better with each passing month.

Amongst the pages is this one full, not of artistamps per say, but of imitation air mail labels.  I wish I could find more as they…

Blog the sixth: A cascade from Cascadia

Posted on September 14, 2019 at 8:22am 0 Comments

I have had a sudden windfall - an embarrassment of riches from the  Postmaster General of Cascadia - enough to warrant a whole blog though I will only post a few images, partly because I am sure most of the stamps and cards will have already been noted and partly because I would rather be away from this infernal machine and busy on more mail.

First, I will post the envelopes because I think most stamp designers (or other mail artists too I dare say) have an interest in seeing how…
