This time we will re-order the sending order so don't send until you've checked the forum thread .
We will each make a booklet by folding 8 1/2 X 11" (A4 will work for our international friends) pieces of either 110 lb. cardstock or 90 lb. watercolor paper and sewing it down the middle (by hand or machine). We'll figure out how many pages after we see how many want to play. It could also be stapled if you absolutely couldn't sew. Just make sure that the pages fold over neatly.
Holding the booklet closed you will treat it as a fat postcard and do a journal page, collage, or painting on one side and use the other for the address, note and stamps. Apply stickers or small pieces of packing tape to the three open sides for mailing. If you would like people to stick to a theme, please put that in your first note to the partner you send to.
When you get the first mailart zine in the mail, cut open the tape, fold over a page and again treat the booklet as a fat postcard. Try to complete your page and move it along to your partner as soon as possible~~at least within two weeks. Here is the thread to keep track of whose booklet you have and how we are progressing. It would also be great if you would photograph or scan your work and post it on Flickr.
We will all work in each booklet eventually. At the end of the process we will each have our own round robin mailart zine that has traveled far and wide! Note that since we are an international group, you may be sending to the same international partner up to 10 times. Please post any questions below or on the forum page.
