Mammoth Mailing from Borderline Grafix (Part II) (Austin, Texas, USA) + Dadanautik (Bremen, Germany)

Mail-art by IUOMA member Borderline Grafix (Austin, Texas, USA)

October 20,2014 - In an earlier posting, I announced the need for a three-part series to share a mammoth mailing received from Borderline Grafix. The first focused on his PhotoAsemic Landscapes, which received rave and fave responses:

Part II presents an absolutely FAB, post-card size verbal visual work (above). Borderline Grafix has been doing work incorporating vispo, concrete poetry, asemics and other related forms. I am totally impressed with the results and thrilled to have hard copies for the archives. I also greatly appreciate this more conventional mail-art that is still entertainingly eccentric and cryptic in the increasingly recognizable BG style:

Also included was a larger collage by Dadanautik (Bremen, Germany)(or at least I assume it is by Dadanautik):

Dadanautik’s always interesting work can be found on most of the major mail-art blogs and while ultimately contemporary, I think some who have been on the Long and Dusty Trail a few cycles will recognize a certain Old School quality. I definitely want to learn more.

As ever, thanks to Borderline Grafix. Part three of the series will present excerpts from a fascinating issue of Smile zine he sent.
