This page gives you an overview of some mail art pieces I have sent out. They are graphics from mail artists to whom I have sent my (snail-) mail art and they sent a digital copy back to me (or placed it on the Internet).

If you get a piece of mail art from me, I would welcome to get a digital copy of it. I will then add it to this growing documentation. I started this file in June 1998 because Ed Giecek (USA) was so kind to send me a photo of him opening the envelope I sent to him.

From Sean Woodward (England) , I received two digital files of envelopes I sent to him. He scanned the images and put them - and some other images made by him - on a diskette. The RUUD.ZIP file was decoded and (above and below) you can see the envelopes:

Some years ago I designed a serie of 10+ Fluxus Bucks for Julie Paquette (USA). I xeroxed them and spread them around in the network. One of them was digitized and used as illustration in an overview-article about mail-art.

For a mail art project (Gutenburg) by Francis van Maele (Luxembourgh) I sent in one of my acryl-painted cards. He made a digital exhibition out of it, so I could get the digital version of my work there.

Like most mail artists I sometimes make artistamps. One of them ended up in the digital exhibition by Jas W. Felter (Canada).

For a project by Toon Joosen (Netherlands) I sent in the logo of the IUOMA and a sticker. Toon made a very large and detailed scan of it and put it online at his virtual gallery (see the mail art link-list that I keep at this site). When something is presented large it always makes another impression than the actual small stamp-print and sticker would make.

This image (above) I found at the site from Artpool in Hungary. Typical in mail art is the add & pass on papers that circulate in the mail art network. I have produced over 100,000 stickers in the 18 years I am active in mail art. It is funny to recognize the this part is censored sticker on one of these papers.

If you receive a piece of snail mail from me and have a scanner or digital camera, I would welcome the digital file (via e-mail). I will add the graphic to this list and mention the background of the piece of mail-art.
