THE ART OF BOOKS & SMALL PRINT PUBLICATIONS

This is a blog on artist books, artist notebooks, magazines, poetry editions and other small print publications. Like FRIOUR is the Icelandic word for peace, BOKLIST are the Icelandic words for book (bok) and art (list). This is also a group blog in which those who are invited can upload their own books and/or comments.

"22", ASSEMBLING MAGAZINE OF PLANET SUSANNIA

Assembly magazines have a long tradition in mail art.

You are asked to produce an art work on a certain size and in a certain amount of copies or you can mail original art contributions in a certain number.

Often the result is great, often I'm disappointed because of the lack of committment of those who contribute. Of course this judgment is not mail art like but I often think that people could make a bigger effort (including myself) for these compilation projects, certainly if they are low in number. The result is quite cool to use an overrated expression from high school kids. (GV)

Size: 15 X 21 cm

Pages: 54

22 is the number of art works or an edition of 22 you have to mail to:

Susanna Lakner, Planet Susannia, Grafin von Linden Weg 24, D-70569 Stuttgart, GERMANY.

It is wise to contact the mail artist behind compilation projects because often they ask you to work around a certain theme for a next edition.
