review 1: I really enjoyed this book! It has a bunch of history bits and anecdotes without being boring. It has many cool ideas with things you can find at home. I like the artist stamps chapter, it was probably my favorite. I enjoyed the extra stickers on the back! The gallery is very cool and interesting and I wish they had even more examples. The references to other books and websites are great. I wish they had gone a little bit more artistic but for that I could buy a mixed media book.
review 2: I'm so happy I stumbled across this book in the library. I love it! The photos are lovely, the artworks delicious and the book is pure fun.- It sets down rules: among them, "no returns" - yay!; "give as good as you get"; "document".- It spells out the 10 commandments. My favo
... morerite: Thou shalt be irreverent.- It gives plenty of advice (the 7 seven sins of mailing; 7 suggestions for shepherding your mail art safely to its destination) and- there are great tips and reminders on looking out for inspiration, collecting junk (oh dear, I see I'm going to need another house to store more of all that wonderful collectible treasures I'm going to be picking up)- It shares techniques for paper folding, making your own stamps and stencils, etc etc...- and of course it gets you started on designing and creating your wonderful mail art.Time to make some cards, envelopes and stuff to send to the rest of the world. 5+++ !! less

I first checked this out at the library. I loved it so much, I bought a copy for myself!
I love this book -- but I might be a bit biased since I'm a contributor!
A great intro to the art-form.
fun, fun, fun!
