Lost Bonniediva Collage Rediscovered! (Gurnee, Illinois, USA)

Bonniediva 7.15.2018 - 1

Mail art by IUOMA member Bonniediva (Gurnee, Illinois, USA)


July 15, 2018 - To be honest this lovely collage with verses was never “lost” as much as it was “misplaced.”  But making lemon juice from sour cherries, I squeeze this into an opportunity to share a hitherto unseen piece from mail art friend – the ever-exceptional – Bonniediva! The collage is vintage October 2017. And a fine harvest indeed!

I have a blog???!

I guess I do. Or at least, that's wot the clicky-button said on the previous page. from which [by clicking] 'I' got 'here'. [virtually].

Currently [re]reading all of William Gibson, at least the novels and a wonderful read he is! Taking a break with Thomas M. Disch's "334" over these past few nites, charging up the ol' memory B4 lites out each eve. Richard Brautigan awaits also.

Soon we start ripping out the floor of the computer 'den' at strangulensis Manor.

Mail Art by "Legend of Trashpo" Neil Gordon (Torrington, Connecticut, USA)

Neil 7.9.2018 - 3

Mail art by IUOMA member DharmaDaDa Neil Gordon (Torrington, Connecticut, USA)


July 10, 2018 - Trashpo (and the accompanying DKult of trashpoets) has been a network activity for about a decade. (Opinions differ – of course – about where and when Trashpo started.)

The popular consensus is that Trashpo began with postings by visual poet Jim Leftwich (Virginia, USA) on Fluxlist in 2007. Diane Keys (Illinois, USA) brought Trashpo to…

From Richard Baudet

And, what can I say about Richard Baudet? I would be thrilled to see anything done with his pen, but it is special to see that lovely script addressed to me. There’s a small sticker with my name on it that I’m not sure I can part with, a friendly note and an uncancelled global stamp…

It’s always a good day when there’s mailart.
