I’ve been wanting to do another zine lately, but I have far too many avenues for the control freak in me as it is.  So I’m starting a project called “Postbook” which will use the postal system to gather contributions for a collaborative art zine, using an add-and-pass traveling hard copy.

Each person contributes their art to a section of the hard-copy, writing their mailing address on the back of that section, and then they send the whole thing to someone else.  When it comes back to me, I’ll put the hard copy together and photocopy and bookletize it into a zine.  The zine will have an address index in the back.  Each contributor will be sent a copy, and I’ll distribute the rest via zine networks (mail order, zineswaps, festivals, donating to libraries.)  Then people who receive the zine can get involved in mail art by sending stuff to the contributors.

So, if you want to participate, you have to send me something.  I have a few mailing lists that I work off of, one of which is the Amorphous International Mail Art Network on Facebook, but I’ll always first send stuff to people I’ve received stuff from.  I’ll most likely start an online archive for the project on Detritus, but in keeping with the theme of that site, you would have to stumble on it accidentally.
