Hello people!

Now that I'm back at work, my writing projects have started to pick up. While working on one, I though of another. I want to make a glossary of mail-art terms to define and print on a broadside. Any suggestions? I want to define the big and the small, for example, I want to define an "add and pass." 

Share your words and phrases with me, if you're so kind. Doing so here, won't even cost 55 cents.

If you can find out what "collage" means, I'll be incredulous and also eternally grateful. But whether or not -- excellent project, Jon.

04.09.20 Dare Mister Jon Foster,....Oh, Good! ...glad to hear you are working on this. ...Maybe alas , we  can find out what "Collage" means. & "Art" & "Mail Art" (or is "Correspondence Art"?) & that "Fluxus" thing. Anyway, all best for your project... I have great confidence in Jon Foster. SinCelery, Richard Canard  .....Post Scriptum: I thought  your Telephone( leave a message) Project was (is) terrific.

"Brain Cell: editor Ryosuke Cohen collects artists’ rubber stamp impressions and stickers through the mail, gathers and reprints them on a poster-sized sheet, and redistributes the results...."

Might find some more terms there.
