I received my first mail art chain letter from Mary Has Sound last week.
"Send a piece of artwork, something made by you, to the first person on the list below, then remove or cross out the first name on the list and add your own name and address at the bottom. Make 10 copies of the new letter that includes your name and address and send it out to people who will keep the idea growing."
I used the "Imagine Peace" as my inspiration, and I created this 5 x 7 inch collage on board to send off to #81 on the list Haddock in Oregon, USA. I'm mailing it naked, so I hope I chose my adhesives wisely. Now I have to figure out 10 folks who won't mind receiving a copy of the letter. (Please let me know if you want one! I promise to send other fun stuff along with it!)
I was on a roll, so I created two 4 x 6 inch cards in the same style, sending one to Valentine Mark Herman and one to Samuel Montalvettti and Sol Pedrosa for their mail art call "Grafismos del Bajo." Since these are traveling internationally, I packaged them in circus-themed party favor bag envelopes. I discovered I like creating mirror image pairs of cards.
