I’m going to call an end to the mail art year. I’m going to save up any creations for the New Year, maybe try and send out a large amount in January. Although I ended up sending out 255 mail art pieces, my total is a few less than last year, I think. On top of the postcards I sent at least forty or fifty zine packages and other random bits of garbage which I need to add to the total. Everything goes in the total for 2014, that’s a resolution.
Not counting everything makes it look like I received a lot more than I sent out, which isn’t even close to being the case. The official “got” total was 265…not bad at all. It was nice to correspond to a bunch of new people this year and keep up regular correspondence with people I’ve sent mail art to for as long as I’ve sent mail-art. It’s nice to continually check in with these folks, see what they’re creating and where they’re vacationing. Although I don’t know any of these people personally, I feel like I know a lot about them.
These last two images are of my zine notetaking. I’ve posted all of the contributors to the mail-art zine as well the folks who said they were interested in my other items. I’ve even noted how much people donated, when I kindly asked for a few monies to offset the amount of postage. I probably shouldn’t have done this, but I spent a couple hundred dollars sending these things out, so…The start of the New Year will bring about two new zines and a lot more mail-art. First I have to finish those zines and those pieces.
