Hi Jen,

Would love to send you some art but can't seem to find your snail-mail address. Would you mind messaging me your address? :)

Thank you!

I received today a banana day artwork from USA.  There is no sender address or even a  mail stamp to identify the city where it was posted.  If you send the group list of names to me I may try to go after who the sent it by sending an e-mail to all US participants.   Yes.  What do you think?

Sure, I'd love to be involved. I'm not a member of this group though, so will try to get that sorted out if necessary.

No problem, Jen. I've been on a bit of a hiatus myself, so I totally understand what you mean by "super busy". I look forward to your mail. Thanks. :^)

Hi Stimpdawg. Thanks for your friendship. I'm flattered someone thinks I'm a "go to" for info on trash books.

The form was invented by Diane Keys (DK). She has an IUOMA group called "All Things Trashpo" that has interesting material.

My take would be: A trashbook is an open form book composed of found material - on one level simply a document of collaged, found material. You can get by with that.

However, Trashpo (trash poetry) is technically a form of visual poetry, so the material you use, ideally, would have words, text, etc. as well as visual images. Here's a great blog by Marie Wintzer that shows an "aesthetic" Trashbook. Some Trashbooks are "artistic" and others anti-art. You can check out the TrashPo Litzer Prize Landfill of Fame in All Things Trashpo to find out who invented them.

It's really very simple.

Hi New Friend Jen! Yes, I'd be only too pleased to exchange some Mail Art with you. I'm going to the Uk tomorrow for a few days, so why don't you start, and I'll reply when I get back atthe end of the month.

Thanks for telling me your interests. Mine are, in no particular order, music (vinyl only, rock'n'roll almost excludively), cats (we have 2), collecting junk at flea markets, non-digital photography, swimming when it's cold and mountain biking when it's warm, reading (European detective series), going to the pub at 6 every evening for a glass of wine and to read the local papers, drinking with friends & in moderation (but not eating), and, of course art -- for my story as an artist see

What's a 'Stimpdawg'??

Regards, Val

Hi Jen, sure! See you in the mail! (You have to ask DeVillo Sloan or Diane Keys what a trashbook is, I wouldn't dare defining it!!) ;-)
