Nancy Bell Scott book cover creations

LOVE the book cover mail art coming from Nancy Bell Scott lately. At first I thought that it was something she had created by hand from blue denim, but upon a closer look, and a smell, I could tell that she had truly re-purposed an antique book.

Getting Started

Hi everyone! 

We are new to IUOMA, our friend Jon has been very involved in with IUOMA and mail art for a while now, and a recent discussion sparked a real mail art passion in both of us....we are very excited to begin creating.

If you have any suggestions and/or ideas for us please let us know. We are just beginning this endeavor so can't wait to see what emerges as we start to create. We will post photos as soon as we can.
