Mail Art

We have been interested in mail art for years, and have a pretty large collection now. We have also participated in many calls around the world, and mail art shows.
  Being the chronic and perpetual archivist that I am, I keep finding new ways and places to share, spread, and connect around the projects. It gets to be unruly, so hopefully it will help to have a page once again specific to mail art- for calls, shows, collections, and creation.
