#29 Collaborative Mail Art Book

Official Mail Art: A Collaborative Book, 2013
Size: 5" by 8"
Earlier this year Jon Foster of Winston-Salem, NC, USA agreed to collaborate with me on a book. He created 6 postcards in his signature style--collage using packaging tape. I created the covers using collage and finished them with packaging tape so that they matched the postcards. In order to show each postcard fully, strips of Tyvek were used to attach each to a side strip. These were then bound using Japanese side-bound sewing techniques. It was fun to design a binding for his work.

The following photos show the front and back covers, and some interior views. Full views of the postcards have been previously blogged. View them at Posts numbered 8, 11, 15, 21 and 26.
