I am going to limit this swap at 10 people so that it will be more manageable. We must also have a minimum of 5 participants.
We will each make a booklet by folding 5 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). 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. Each person gets to choose what theme they'd like their book to reflect. For instance: Spells, rituals, Holidays, freeform, your tradition, etc.
Here is the original swap that I am in that was the inspiration behind this project. =D
Here is the forum post to post any questions, get clarification, and after partners are assigned: keep up with where our books are.
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.
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 10 times. Please do not sign up for the swap if that could pose a problem.
This should be a great time!
