WOW From Bifidus Jones!

This Mail Art was made with love.  Bifidus made a matchbox into a mechanical  scrolling poem machine!  Well, not  exactly  a poem....more like a list.  But what a creative list indeed, so to me, it's a poem.  "The Stuff That Rocks Put Up With" is at the end off the list.  Here's the list:  Gravity and sling shots/ fat sheep slipping/ seagulls/ dead walleye drifting/ caveman… Continue

Hi from a newbie

Monsieur Martin est arrivé en Utopia !!!

Il y a une heure, Monsieur Martin est arrivé en Utopia où il va passer quelques jours avec l'Ambassadeur "E". Il est parti de son domicile chez "I'm a superhero" (USA) il y a peu pour aller à la rencontre des mailartistes à travers le monde.

A Book of Ether, Chapters 1&2 - from Cheryl Penn


Ether is one of Cheryl's favorite words, and after meeting it several times in our conversations I became fascinated by the concept behind it. Ether is a word that is so multilayered that it is impossible to simply give one definition of it. This word needed a book!
