I randomly sent a few zines to IUOMA people who didn’t ask for the thing. I figured why not? One of them I sent to a mail-art confidant in Brooklyn, M. Williams. A little later as I was looking for images of my mail art (I’m embarrassed I do this, but I do) I found a rather lengthy review from her. I was so blown away and surpr…
